“RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars” Spoiler Uploads to RealityTVLeaks Results in Lawsuits: WOW Productions


World of Wonder Productions is the copyright holder for the TV shows “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars”. WOW Productions has filed a lawsuit in California alleging that the Defendants obtained copies of  show episodes prior to their airing and uploaded them to the Internet.

World of Wonder Productions alleges that Defendants obtained copies of episodes of All Stars (the “All Stars Episodes” or “Episodes”) and uploaded them to social media platforms including Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit using the username “RealityTVLeaks” prior to the airing of each Episode.

The lawsuit’s legal theory is an action for copyright infringement under 17 U.S.C. § 501, et seq. and for violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 1202 “arising out of Defendants’ unlawful theft and public dissemination of episodes of the popular and critically-acclaimed reality television show “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars” (“All Stars”) series.” The lawsuit was filed in federal court and is titled World of Wonder Productions, Inc. v. Does 1-10 2:18-cv-01251. The law firm LOEB & LOEB LLP are the attorneys for Plaintiff WORLD OF WONDER PRODUCTIONS, INC.


Did You Receive a Copyright Infringement Notice from Your Internet Service Provider (ISP)?

Did you receive a copyright infringement notice from your internet service provider (ISP), and a subpoena from  a movie company such as STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC or  MALIBU MEDIA LLC for the illegal download of their movies? Don’t panic, we’re here to help. The letter from your ISP explains that you can file a Motion to Quash or Vacate the Subpoena. Call us for our free consultation, we will explain what this means and how it may benefit you.

Attorney Jeffrey Antonelli has been interviewed by Bloomberg news and many others. We have defended nearly 2,000 people nationwide from movie company lawsuits from California to New York.

Why Did I Receive a Subpoena and ISP Letter?

The movie company hired a law firm to sue people who allegedly downloaded their copyrighted movies for free and thus committed copyright infringement. When that law firm filed the lawsuit, all they had was an IP address relating to the alleged computer downloads. They did not have a name to match the IP address.

In order for the law firm to name and serve the Internet Subscriber with the lawsuit Summons and Complaint, they must first issue a subpoena to the internet company to reveal the name and address of the internet subscriber whose account matches the IP address.

When the internet company receives the subpoena, it issues the account holder a letter and copy of the subpoena it received, informing that the subpoena was received and that a motion to quash the subpoena can be filed before it releases the account subscriber’s name and address.

Essentially, the movie company is alleging that someone in the home or office illegally downloaded adult (pornographic) movies they have produced using file-sharing software such as BitTorrent without paying a license fee.

What Do I Do About My ISP Subpoena Relating to Copyright Infringement?

Firstly and most importantly- don’t ignore it! You have a limited amount of time to decide what to do; the longer you leave it, the fewer choices you’ll have. Typically, you have anywhere from two weeks to one month after receiving the ISP letter and subpoena to decide what to do.

Secondly, deleting anything could make the penalties worse, don’t try to hide anything.

Don’t Sign Anything Before Speaking with a Copyright Defense Attorney

If you receive a Waiver of Service of Summons form in the mail, don’t sign it before speaking with an experienced attorney. Signing the Waiver of Service of Summons form you received in the mail from the movie company’s lawyer will in some cases lead to an unfair default or consent judgments against you.

Speaking with an experienced attorney with a background in ISP subpoena defense can help you make informed decisions about how to proceed. Antonelli Law provides free copyright infringement consultations to those Internet users being sued..

Antonelli Law knows how to help you figure out the best action for your subpoena defense and the Copyright Infringement Claims. We’re the nation’s most experienced BT copyright defense firm, with a record of having helped nearly 2,000 people across the country accused of downloading movies over the internet in the types of lawsuits such as the ones brought by MALIBU MEDIA LLC against Michigan, Connecticut, Illinois, New York, Maryland, and Washington DC area users over the adult movies featured on the X-Art.com website.

Contact us to see which option is best for your MALIBU MEDIA LLC case.

Resolving Your Copyright Infringement Case Anonymously

The easiest and most common way to resolve your case is out of court. Choosing this option allows you to settle anonymously. At Antonelli Law, we charge a flat legal fee of somewhere between $1,500 – $2,000 for anonymous settlements.

Filing a Motion to Quash the ISP Subpoena You Received

The motion to quash argues that the lawsuit’s complaints claiming copyright infringement only claim a few ‘bits’ of data were transmitted by the IP address and user in question, therefore they do not provide enough evidence to make a claim on copyright infringement, and the court should throw out the copyright infringement lawsuit brought by the movie company due to deficiency, then the court should also quash the subpoena for the user in question. At Antonelli Law, we offer a flat rate for filing motions to quash a subpoena.

This option is not without risks. Contact Antonelli’s experienced ISP subpoena defense lawyers to discuss this option further.

Preparing to Fight Your Case in Court

When choosing to fight a copyright infringement lawsuit brought against you by a movie company such as STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS or MALIBU MEDIA LLC, for the illegal downloading of their movies Antonelli Law should be your first choice for defense.

We have local counsel coast to coast, to help us efficiently settle or fight lawsuits brought against our clients. We offer free consultations where we explain what you can expect when fighting this copyright infringement lawsuit in court. After that, we charge an hourly fee.

There are many defense standpoints from which we can tenaciously work to fight the copyright infringement lawsuit. One of the most common forms of defense is claiming that the user who transmitted the data for the movie through a BitTorrent swarm is not the user at this IP address.

This is a strong defense because the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against the defendant assumes that the defendant used their own IP address to transmit the data for the movie. However, hackers often disguise their IP addresses when illegally transmitting data online, so in many cases, the defendant is not at fault and did not commit copyright infringement.
