MALIBU MEDIA LLC ISP Subpoena: MALIBU MEDIA LLC, the movie company behind the adult movies featured on the X-Art.com website is sending letters to those defendants they obtained a DEFAULT JUDGMENT AGAINST and threatening to report to credit agencies unless paid. Learn about these lawsuits from Antonelli Law, who has defended nearly 600 people nationwide from Malibu Media LLC.
Malibu Media LLC has been suing thousands of people the past several years, for allegedly obtaining their copyrighted porn movies using BitTorrent. in some of those cases, default judgments were obtained.
Based on several callers to our law firm and interviewed by attorney Jeffrey Antonelli, these default judgments appear to have been obtained based on fault service of process. While an investigation must be made to be sure, these similarities raise the question of whether the practice of “sewer service” is to blame for these default judgments. “Sewer Service” is the practice made infamous in the terrible housing mortgage crisis of a failure to provide service of process on a named party in a lawsuit, in order to prevent the party from having a chance to respond. We have heard the practice during the mortgage crisis was due to certain unsavory process servers who simply failed to serve the defendant, but lied in an affidavit of service in order to get paid for the job.
A default judgment made possible by faulty (or non-existent) service of process of the Summons and Complaint may be challenged as a void judgment.
If you receive a letter from Malibu Media LLC about a default judgment, contact us for a free, confidential, and comprehensive consultation.

There are many defense standpoints from which we can tenaciously work to fight the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against Connecticut, New York, and Maryland area users by MALIBU MEDIA LLC over the adult (pornographic) movies from “X-Art.com”. One of the most common forms of defense is claiming that the user who transmitted the data for the adult movies featured on the X-Art.com website. through a BitTorrent 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.
