Whether or not you downloaded their content, you are still probably going to be sued. At this point, Strike 3 Holdings thinks you downloaded their content and the court believes they have enough evidence for the case to proceed.
You may have three potential options available to you regarding your specific case. However, each case will be different.
Fight back in court
Settle your case out of court
File a Motion to Quash
If you choose to settle, having an attorney experienced in these types of cases may help you negotiate a lower Strike 3 Holdings settlement amount. We aggressively negotiate settlement amounts for our clients and will fight for you until your case is resolved entirely.

If you find yourself having to deal with a copyright suit with Strike 3 holdings as we did not long ago, we recommend you hire Mr. Antonelli and his team. Mr. Antonelli was able to guide us through every step of the settlement. He was able to settle our case for a substantially smaller amount than Strike 3 Holding demanded. Thank you for all your help.
Each internet connection has a unique IP address that is specific to that unique connection. Using various methods and technology, Strike 3 Holdings was allegedly able to track illegal downloads of their content to your IP address.
Once Strike 3 Holdings has your IP address, they can do a ‘reverse lookup.’ This will help them figure out who provides the internet to your home, such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, etc.
By knowing both your IP address and your internet provider, Strike 3 Holdings can file a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement and ask a judge for permission to send a subpoena to your internet provider. This subpoena is requesting your name and address.
The first thing to note is that this subpoena is real, and it is not a scam. You are being sued for copyright infringement in federal court. Right now, you are likely known to the court only as John Doe. If you ignore the subpoena, your internet service provider could release your name to Strike 3 Holdings LLC’s lawyers.
Once Strike 3 Holdings has your name, in almost all cases, they will amend the complaint name in the public court documents from ‘John Doe’ to your name. You will then be served with a court summons. Under no circumstances should you ever ignore a court summons.
Many clients don’t mind losing their anonymity. However, the downside to ignoring your Strike 3 Holdings subpoena and receiving a summons is that your options moving forward are limited, and you’ll likely lose some of your negotiating power.
Settling with Strike 3 Holdings LLC can make the situation go away faster and can buy you peace of mind.
Antonelli can discuss your options during our free, confidential consultation, and we can explain how if you settle through Antonelli Law and your circumstances qualify, we can ensure that both the settlement and the settlement payment are made anonymously.

I highly recommend Antonelli Law’s legal services based on my case’s outcome. Our interactions were very clear, respectful and efficient and I think that an excellent settlement was reached given my circumstances. The firm confidentially settled a planned lawsuit based on a discovery motion filed in Florida and prepared for California court.
