How much is a Malibu Media Settlement?

This is one of our most frequent questions from clients.  The answer is that it depends on the case.

Malibu Media’s settlements are typically higher than other filers of copyright lawsuits, often in the $6,000 to $15,000 range.  They may be less in certain circumstances, or if you can prove financial hardship with documentation.

Having an attorney experienced in dealing with Malibu Media may help you negotiate a lower settlement amount. We aggressively negotiate settlement amounts for our clients.

  • All claims up through the settlement date (whether known or unknown) are covered.
    • That means you will not be sued again by the same company for any additional supposed download activity that occurred prior to the settlement date.
  • You as a ‘Subscriber’ are released, not just your IP address.
    • That means you are still covered if multiple IP addresses were used in any downloading activity.

What our clients say:

My family has never been part of any lawsuit… until recently. There is a first time for everything.

We received a letter from Comcast advising that they received a subpoena requesting demographic information with regards to our IP address. I researched the matter thoroughly and discovered that we were being sued for copy right infringement. Very scary!

I spoke to numerous attorneys, most scared me even more by telling me that the fines for copy right infringement are extremely high and pushing into settlement, as well as charging an arm and a leg. I researched for several more days after that and came across Mr. Antonelli’s site, I read his articles, also noticed while reviewing some federal cases similar to ours, that his firm has represented other defendants in the Western District Court.

I reached out to Mr. Antonelli via email, he responded promptly and we scheduled a phone call to discuss this case in more detail. He was confident in his abilities and experience, but most importantly he was compassionate, he listened, gave me the best and worst case scenarios.

He did not push me into settlement, he provided me with options. He allowed me to make the best decision for my family while guiding and counseling me.

Katrina Harris, his paralegal, was amazing. Always timely and courteous. Made sure that all information requested by Mr. Antonelli from us was accounted for, kept us all on schedule and provided daily answers and updates.

My family and I are so very grateful to Mr. Antonelli and Ms. Harris for handling this case with compassion and care, professionalism and knowledge, but of course above all… the best results. Mr. Antonelli has a high regard for his profession, he is one of the most ethical attorneys I have had the pleasure of working with but also very fierce. Thank you so much!
