Malibu Media LLC, the producer of pornographic films on the x-art.com website is suing a number of internet users in Texas under the US Copyright Act for allegedly downloading its movies for free from the internet. The first round of lawsuits were filed on February 10th and the second round of lawsuits were filed on February 15th.
These new lawsuits in 2017 appear to be coordinated as part of a new litigation campaign Malibu Media LLC has begun across the country.
Malibu Media LLC owns the X-Art.com website and alleges the people it sues are users of BitTorrent file-sharing technology that are illegally obtaining and sharing their copyrighted movies for free. Significant questions have arisen regarding the methods the company’s agents employ in order to obtain the IP addresses of the lawsuits’ defendants.

Federal Court Allows Antonelli Law to Represent You Effectively Without Being More Expensive Than a Qualified Local Law Firm
BitTorrent copyright lawsuits are only filed in federal court.
This means that the law for Malibu Media LLC cases is the same everywhere in the country (unlike state law cases like divorce or traffic court). Antonelli Law is very familiar with both the federal law and the important court cases that directly affect your Malibu Media LLC defense. We have represented over 500 clients fighting against copyright infringement claims made against them by Malibu Media LLC. Our deep experience helps every client we represent.
In addition, we are more efficient than the traditional copyright lawyers you might find locally who must first learn the unique cases applicable to BitTorrent copyright defense (and likely charge you for their time do to so), as well as learn the technology and ins and outs of practicing in this niche practice area.
Hiring Antonelli Law not only means you get zealous representation looking out for you. Hiring Antonelli Law means you don’t have to pay a local law firm to “catch up” on what BitTorrent technology is, the years of federal court cases around the country that apply to BitTorrent copyright infringement claims, nor the typical litigation strategies and technical attestations in Malibu Media LLC motions and lawsuits.
Finally, federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. When they are, we’ll be there.
