LHF Productions Inc. Motion for Protective Order Denied

Share

LHF Productions, Inc. the copyright holder for the movie “London Has Fallen” starring Morgan Freeman, Gerard Butler, and Aaron Eckhart is suing internet users in Illinois and other jurisdictions for allegedly downloading the film using file-sharing software over the internet in violation of the US Copyright Act. Right now, LHF Productions, Inc. are issuing subpoenas in Chicago, Illinois and many other jurisdictions.

One person who received a letter from Comcast about copyright infringement and a copy of the subpoena from LHF Productions, Inc. tried to prevent their identity from being revealed (rather than just their IP address) by filing a motion for a protective order with the court.

However, Judge Rebecca R. Pallmeyer denied the motion (click here to see a copy of the court order).  It is unclear why Judge Pallmeyer denied the motion. But since it was denied “without prejudice” we would guess the reason is because the person filed the motion without using their name, since keeping their name out of the public court record is the whole point of the motion and the courts ordinarily deny motions filed by people who do not reveal their identity.

To properly file a motion for a protective order to keep your name from being public, you most likely need to hire an attorney to do this. Practically speaking, the chances of a motion for a protective order being granted is very low for a non-pornographic movie lawsuit like this one by LHF Productions about the movie “London Has Fallen.”

If you receive an LHF Productions Inc subpoena, the best thing to do is to talk with an experienced lawyer.

  • Learn about what the notice means.
  • Do you want to quickly and anonymously make this go away by resolving the lawsuit by settling?
  • Or do you want to prepare to fight the lawsuit?
  • Should you file a motion to quash the subpoena
  • Ask every question that concerns you.
