Each lawsuit is filed in federal court and requests permission to find out the real names of internet users associated with IP addresses suspected of being part of the movie downloading. This is done by sending a subpoena to the internet company (ISP). Most people find out they are involved in the lawsuit when they receive a letter from their internet company (ISP) such as Comcast, COX, Comcast, or Verizon informing them of the copyright infringement allegations. A copy of a ME2 Productions Inc. Subpoena will probably be enclosed.

If you are the account holder for an internet service provider (ISP), your name is linked to an IP address. If you receive a Comcast Cable or other ISP letter informing you a subpoena was received to reveal your identity for a copyright infringement lawsuit, call Antonelli Law nationwide about your options including a motion to quash the subpoena at 312-201-8310.

ME2 Productions Inc. subpoenas and summons can be scary or inconvenient, but we can help you manage the risk and the hassle.

Please tell your friends NOT to download this movie or they may be sued. Their first notice will be receiving one of the several ME2 Productions Inc. subpoenas.
