ISP Defense Lawyer Client Review – Antonelli Law – ISP Subpoena Defense


ISP Defense Lawyer Client Review of Antonelli Law Submitted March 2018

“Many law abiding citizens don’t think this will happen to them but I’m here to say it does. I got a knock at the door one day and received an ISP letter from my cable company and inside of it was a copy of a subpoena with my IP address. I didn’t understand what it was, why I got it or the possible legal issues it could mean for myself and my family much less the worry of dealing with a legal issue when you live paycheck to paycheck. Like most people I googled ISP letter and what you find is scary so I decided to google ISP defense attorneys and Antonelli Law had great reviews and I liked what I saw on their website. I decided to reach out to Antonelli and associates with Jeff himself picking up the phone. Many may not like talking with Attorneys but Jeff was great to talk to and the call was like talking with any other guy. He provided me an initial consultation at no charge while taking his time to get all the specifics but what made the difference is he was very understanding of the situation I was forced into and provided me very sound legal advice even before I retained him. I made sure I was very transparent with him and he was the same with me discussing all options and the possible outcomes of each including possible dollar amounts. I decided to retain his services after we talked. The communication was top notch which is important to me. Jeff reached a settlement quickly while looking out for my interests the whole way. I would definitely recommend calling Jeff and his team if you are put into this unfortunate situation as I was and I will say timeliness makes the difference!

Why Did I Receive a Subpoena from STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC or MALIBU MEDIA LLC?

The subpoena relates to a federal copyright infringement lawsuit. Essentially, the movie company is alleging that someone in the home or office illegally downloaded their copyrighted movies produced using file-sharing software such as BitTorrent without paying a license fee.

We hear fairly often in our BitTorrent copyright infringement practice that our clients have been sued due to obtaining movies for free – not just by using a Torrent program, but also by streaming using Popcorn Time , Showbox, or even Kodi. It remains to be seen whether any of our clients sued by Strike 3 Holdings is due to using these streaming services.

We also hear that the Internet Subscriber who contacts us has no idea what this is about. We are adept at explaining the law and BitTorrent file-sharing technology in ways that most people understand. This can be the first step in either finding out who the actual downloader was, or in determining the subscriber’s IP address being matched to the movie downloading activity was probably a mistake.

Set up a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your case, or keep reading below for more information on what you can expect from your case with STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC.


Firstly and most importantly- don’t ignore it! You have a limited amount of time to decide what to do; the longer you leave it, the fewer choices you’ll have. Typically, you have anywhere from two weeks to one month after receiving the ISP letter and subpoena to decide what to do.

Secondly, deleting anything could make the penalties worse, don’t try to hide anything.

Don’t Sign Anything Before Speaking with a Copyright Defense Attorney

If you receive a Waiver of Service of Summons form in the mail, don’t sign it before speaking with an experienced attorney. Signing the Waiver of Service of Summons form you received in the mail from the movie company’s lawyer will in some cases lead to an unfair default or consent judgments against you.

Speaking with an experienced attorney with a background in ISP subpoena defense can help you make informed decisions about how to proceed. Antonelli Law provides free copyright infringement consultations to those Internet users and defendants in other states being sued. We are currently representing Strike 3 Holdings and Malibu Media LLC Defendants on the West Coast, Illinois, Michigan, and the East Coast.

If you want to read more about recent cases of ISP users in copyright infringement allegation lawsuits, consider this article by Jeffrey Antonelli about “copyright troll” litigation, published by the Illinois State Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Section. It speaks to our experience in this field of litigation.

Once you’ve spoken to an experienced ISP Subpoena Defense Attorney, you’ll understand your specific case better, but generally, you have three options:

Defendants’ Options for the STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC and MALIBU MEDIA LLC Copyright Infringement Claims:

  • Resolve the case anonymously
  • File a motion to quash before it gets to court
  • Prepare to fight your case in court

Antonelli Law knows how to help you figure out the best action for your subpoena defense and the Copyright Infringement Claims. We’re the nation’s most experienced BT copyright defense firm, with a record of having helped nearly 2,000 people across the country accused of downloading movies over the internet in these types of lawsuits.

Contact us to see which option is best for your STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC and MALIBU MEDIA LLC case.


Resolving Your STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC and MALIBU MEDIA Copyright Infringement Case Anonymously

The easiest and most common way to resolve your case is out of court. Choosing this option allows you to settle anonymously. At Antonelli Law, we charge a flat legal fee of $2,500 for anonymous settlements.

Filing a Motion to Quash the STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC or MALIBU MEDIA LLC Subpoena You Received

The motion to quash argues that the lawsuit’s complaints claiming copyright infringement only claim a few ‘bits’ of data were transmitted by the IP address and user in question, therefore they do not provide enough evidence to make a claim on copyright infringement, and the court should throw out the copyright infringement lawsuit brought by the movie company due to the deficiency, then the court should also quash the subpoena for the user in question. At Antonelli Law, we offer a flat rate for filing motions to quash a subpoena.

This option is not without risks. Contact Antonelli’s experienced ISP subpoena defense lawyers to discuss this option further.

Preparing to Fight Your STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC or MALIBU MEDIA LLC Case in Court

When choosing to fight a copyright infringement lawsuit brought against you, Antonelli Law should be your first choice for defense.

We have local counsel coast to coast, to help us efficiently settle or fight lawsuits brought against our clients. We offer free consultations where we explain what you can expect when fighting this copyright infringement lawsuit in court. After that, we charge an hourly fee.

There are many defense standpoints from which we can tenaciously work to fight the copyright infringement lawsuits brought against Internet users. One of the most common forms of defense is claiming that the user who transmitted the data for the movies through a BitTorrent swarm is not the user at this IP address.

This is a strong defense because the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against the defendant assumes that the defendant used their own IP address to transmit the data for the movie. However, hackers often disguise their IP addresses when illegally transmitting data online, so in many cases, the defendant is not at fault and did not commit copyright infringement using a Bittorrent program.
