Malibu Media LLC, the producer of pornographic films on the x-art.com website is rapidly increasing the number of internet users it is suing in Michigan under the US Copyright Act for allegedly downloading its movies for free from the internet.
While Malibu Media LLC had sued internet users in Michigan heavily in 2012-2015 suing approximately 389 people then, it ceased filing cases at all in Michigan during 2016. Then on February 9, 2017 through new attorneys it filed 2 new lawsuits against internet users. And on February 11th and 12th, nearly 20 more were sued.

The best thing to do first is don’t panic. Call a lawyer experienced with movie-sharing lawsuits, including experience fighting Malibu Media LLC.

Federal Court Allows Antonelli Law to Represent You Effectively Without Being More Expensive Than a Qualified Local Law Firm
BitTorrent copyright lawsuits are only filed in federal court.
This means that the law for Malibu Media LLC cases is the same everywhere in the country (unlike state law cases like divorce or traffic court). Antonelli Law is very familiar with both the federal law and the important court cases that directly affect your Malibu Media LLC defense. We have represented over 500 clients fighting against copyright infringement claims made against them by Malibu Media LLC. Our deep experience helps every client we represent.
In addition, we are more efficient than the traditional copyright lawyers you might find locally who must first learn the unique cases applicable to BitTorrent copyright defense (and likely charge you for their time do to so), as well as learn the technology and ins and outs of practicing in this niche practice area.
Hiring Antonelli Law not only means you get zealous representation looking out for you. Hiring Antonelli Law means you don’t have to pay a local law firm to “catch up” on what BitTorrent technology is, the years of federal court cases around the country that apply to BitTorrent copyright infringement claims, nor the typical litigation strategies and technical attestations in Malibu Media LLC motions and lawsuits.
Finally, federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. When they are, we’ll be there. Our last court appearance in a Michigan Malibu Media LLC case was before Judge Jonker in Grand Rapids.
