When you receive this notification, you are still anonymous. The court and Strike 3 Holdings will still know you as ‘John Doe.’ Usually, you will have 30 days or less from the day you receive the notification to decide how you want to handle your case before you have fewer options.
Each internet connection will have a specific IP address unique to that connection. By using various technology methods, 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.’ Strike 3 Holdings LLC can then figure out who provides the internet to your home (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, etc.).
By knowing both your internet provider and your IP address, 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 notice you received is your internet provider letting you know your personal information is being requested. Before your internet provider releases this information, they send the subpoena notification to you.
It is vital to note that this subpoena is actual and not a scam. You are being sued for copyright infringement in federal court. Right now, you are known as John Doe to the court if you have just received your subpoena. If you ignore the subpoena, your internet service provider will most likely release your real name to the Strike 3 Holdings LLC lawyers.
As soon as 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 likely be served with a court summons.
Under no circumstance should anyone ignore a court summons.
Many clients don’t mind losing their anonymity. Still, the downside to ignoring your Strike 3 Holdings subpoena and receiving a summons is that your options moving forward are limited, and you’ll lose some of your negotiating power.
