Activities in Illinois Heat Up
The movie The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler and Steve Buscemi (one of my favorite actors) is a touching story about a Jewish man (Adam Sandler) working in his multi-generational shoe cobbler shop, who comes upon a special gift allowing him to cloak himself in the appearance of his customers through the shoes they leave behind. The movie was released in March 2015, and I recently watched it on Netflix. I found it worthy of my time.
However, the owner of the copyright to The Cobbler, Cobbler Nevada LLC, has been filing federal copyright infringement lawsuits against those it accuses of illegally downloading the movie through the use of software called BitTorrent. Cobbler Nevada LLC filed 6 lawsuits against a total of 199 so-called ” John Doe” defendants in the Northern District of Illinois this week. These defendants are not yet publicly named, but they can expect to start receiving notification from their ISP in the coming weeks about the lawsuit, and subpoenas their ISP have received which may force the ISP to release their identity.
To date, Cobbler Nevada LLC has filed lawsuits in Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Oregon, Texas and Wisconsin.
Glacier Films Inc. has filed similar lawsuits for a film titled “American Heist.” This week, Glacier Films Inc. filed a case against 12 so-called ” John Doe” defendants in the Northern District of Illinois. Glacier Films Inc. has filed lawsuits in Illinois and Oregon.
