Strike 3 Holdings has filed several federal copyright infringement lawsuits over the past few years, but their recent focus on filing in Florida state court has left defendants wondering what their options are and how these filings are different.
In truth, both cases filed in federal and Florida state court accuse defendants of copyright infringement. The biggest difference is the criticism Strike 3 Holdings has received from filing in a state court. Many have accused Strike 3 of improper use of Florida’s “pure bill of discovery” to file cases, but improper filing or not, these cases are serious and time-sensitive.
Your first notice of a lawsuit is typically a subpoena from Strike 3 Holdings and a letter from your internet service provider (ISP) alerting you that Strike 3 Holdings is seeking your name and your address. You, or someone in your home or office, are accused of downloading their adult film content, often using filesharing software like BitTorrent, without paying the proper licensing fees. Whether you’re guilty or not, Strike 3 Holdings is accusing you of copyright infringement and it’s important to discuss your options with an experienced copyright infringement attorney.
Your three options are to settle anonymously, file a motion to quash, or fight your case in court. Many defendants choose to settle their case anonymously. This option allows defendants to resolve their case without their name being publicly tied to the case. When you choose to settle with an experienced copyright infringement attorney representing you, such as an attorney at Antonelli Law, you may be able to settle for a lower amount.
It can be hard to know which option is truly best for you, but we can discuss your case and your options, and make recommendations as to what may work best for you. Give us a call and learn more about how to settle your case with Strike 3 Holdings and keep your anonymity intact.
Anonymously settling your Strike 3 Holdings case through Antonelli Law ensures that:
- 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.
