Malibu Media LLC Turns Up the Heat in Ohio and Maryland


In June we reported that Malibu Media LLC had begun to test the waters in the Northern District of Ohio, and Ohio has been heating up.

Since May of this year, Malibu Media LLC has filed approximately 207 new BitTorrent copyright lawsuits in the federal courts of Ohio, all through its local counsel Yousef Faroniya. Six were filed in the last two days.

However, the bigger if not unexpected story is that since the three judge panel in the Maryland District Court denied all of one defense counsel’s motions to consolidate and stay the pending Malibu Media cases on September 18th, Malibu Media LLC filed a set of 17 new BitTorrent copyright lawsuits in Maryland through its local counsel Jon Hoppe. We’re surprised it didn’t happen even sooner.

It is not a good idea to download the Malibu Media ( movies using BitTorrent or similar software.  If you are a parent make sure your children are not doing this; if you have roommates make sure your roommates are not doing this, as being a target of a federal lawsuit like this over a movie download is not fun, not fair, and is avoidable.
