Antonelli Law’s Win in Illinois Against Malibu Media LLC
Antonelli Law recently represented a John Doe (assigned IP address 220.127.116.11) against Malibu Media LLC who alleged the defendant illegally downloaded their adult films. Malibu Media LLC is a company that produces adult films and distributes them through the website x-art.com.
Antonelli Law successfully defended their client and got the claim dismissed without prejudice by Judge Sara L. Ellis of the United States District Court Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division.
Malibu Media LLC has filed thousands of lawsuits against anonymous defendants for allegedly illegally downloading their adult films, most likely using a file-sharing software such as BitTorrent. Malibu Media LLC has until December 20th to inform the court if it has decided to attempt to amend its claims or abandon it.
Jeffrey Antonelli explains why it’s important to choose a specialist ISP subpoena defense law firm to defend you against Malibu Media LLC:
“Because we are very experienced in the field and constantly following this type of law, we are able to better know if a judge will be friendly towards your case. We also know other cases in the field so we can cite them before the court.
In this situation, we cited an important new case that came out of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which said in addition to having someone’s IP address, a movie company really needs something else before they go ahead and put someone through the burden of being named in a lawsuit.”
