What Are My Options After Receiving a Malibu Media Subpoena?
- Resolve anonymously and settle with Malibu Media: The defendant typically needs to start this process within 30 days of receiving the subpoena from their internet service provider (ISP). Many defendants choose the option to resolve their Malibu Media subpoena as they want to ensure they remain anonymous. Anonymity remains possible because it is a doe subpoena, which means that defendants’ names are listed on the public docket as anonymous. The ISP has to send a letter to the defendant informing them that they have received a Malibu Media subpoena before a defendant’s name can be released to Malibu Media.

- File a motion to quash before it gets to court: Within two weeks to one month from receiving the subpoena, the defendant needs to begin the process of filing a motion to quash. Many defendants choose this option as they believe that the evidence presented is deficient. Filing a motion to quash a Malibu Media summons or subpoena attempts to persuade the judge that this copyright infringement lawsuit is so lacking that it cannot be repaired.
