If you’ve received a notice from your internet service provider (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc.) alerting you that Malibu Media is requesting your name, the time to take action is now.
This notice indicates that Malibu Media LLC is accusing you or someone at your IP address of illegally downloading their adult films and content without paying the proper licensing fee. These notices are serious and should not be ignored.
If your notice has been addressed to John Doe, there may still be time before your name is released. Typically, you have approximately 30 days before your ISP releases your name to Malibu Media.
You Have Received a Malibu Media Subpoena, What’s Next?
You have a few options once you have received a subpoena. We do not recommend you ignore Malibu Media- instead, we can help you anonymously settle your case, file a motion to quash, or prepare to fight in court. Our team at Antonelli Law can take a look at your specific case and advise you on the best course of action for you and describe what each process involves so that you can make the right decision for your individual situation.
Should I settle with Malibu Media?
That’s completely up to you. If you choose an anonymous settlement through Antonelli Law you are not required to admit guilt. In many cases, a civil lawsuit requires no mention of guilt or wrongdoing and acts as a resolution between two parties. If settling is the right answer for you, we will advise you through the settlement process and will aggressively negotiate on your behalf, and you may even end up paying a smaller settlement amount than originally demanded.
Why Should I Avoid My Name Being Released to Malibu Media LLC?
There are several reasons to take action before your name is released. Once your name has been provided to Malibu Media, your name could be tied to the case in public court documents. Most of the individuals who speak to us would prefer to avoid having their name tied to a case regarding illegal adult film downloads, but for those in certain industries, it could also potentially impact their career.
For example, politicians, teachers, policemen, etc. could experience backlash from their employer and/or the public if their name was tied to a Malibu Media case no matter their level of guilt or innocence. Reach out to us before it gets to that point.
You may not mind losing your anonymity, but by ignoring the subpoena and being served with a summons, you will have also have drastically reduced the options open to you on how you’d like to handle your case against Malibu Media moving forward.
