I Received a Subpoena from Malibu Media, How Serious is it?

In many of these cases, defendants are also accused to using the filesharing software BitTorrent to download and share the films.

These cases are extremely serious and time-sensitive, so if you’ve received a subpoena you should act as soon as possible.

I don’t want my name to be released to Malibu Media, how do I avoid that?

Your subpoena from Malibu Media explained

Your first notice of the lawsuit will likely be a notice from your internet service provider (ISP) such as Comcast, Verizon, or AT&T and a subpoena from Malibu Media, LLC. This means that Malibu Media is trying to obtain your name, which they could then tie to your case publicly.

You typically only have 30 days before your name is released to Malibu Media before your anonymity could be lost, which can have personal and professional consequences.

It is imperative you act quickly if you want to retain your anonymity and avoid your name being publicly tied to your case.
