Strike 3 Holdings Files 60 Lawsuits in Florida
According to the Miami Herald, the 60 copyright infringement lawsuits filed against Florida defendants at the beginning of the month are part of 1,200 cases brought by Strike 3 Holdings across the country. The company has one of the highest paid-subscriber volumes of any adult website in the United States. Strike 3 Holdings is facing the problem of stolen content leading them to contract with xTakeDowns.com to send about 50,000 take-down notices per day and file copyright infringement lawsuits against anonymous BitTorrent users to deter piracy. These cases have grown from 4 percent of all copyright cases in 2010 to 58 percent in 2015 according to the Miami Herald.
The Miami Herald quotes Jeffrey Antonelli as saying, “My concern, like any defense attorney, is whether the data is valid.”
With some of these cases, there is a concern regarding the accuracy of the IP address identification service by the German online investigation company Strike 3 uses. If you believe that some of the data in your case is not accurate, you may have some options:
- File a motion to quash: A motion to quash can inform the court of defects in the plaintiff’s background or the complaint, such as if the case was filed in a different district from where you live. Even if the motion is granted, Strike 3 Holdings may have the ability to file an amended lawsuit. You should always discuss whether filing a motion to quash is the right option for you with an experienced ISP subpoena defense attorney.
- Anonymously settle: Agreeing to pay a financial settlement can allow you to remain anonymous while giving you peace of mind. If you settle through an attorney like Antonelli Law, you will be completely protected from any future copyright actions from Strike 3 Holdings for alleged download activity made before the settlement.
- Fight it: Fighting the lawsuit in court means you could win and get damages including legal fees. You could also lose and owe much more than the original settlement amount. If this is the right option for you, choose an experienced ISP subpoena defense firm like Antonelli Law. We understand the sophisticated technology involved in these cases, which is crucial to building a solid defense. Our last complex trial even included a Microsoft certified expert.
