Strike 3 Holdings LCC allowed to move forward with subpoenas for New York defendants
Strike 3 Holdings LLC has been granted permission to subpoena internet providers in order to find Rochester area residents who allegedly downloaded their adult content illegally. Strike 3 Holdings LLC filed the suit against the New York defendants earlier this summer. Strike 3’s attorney, Jacqueline James, said the company had no choice but to file the lawsuits in order to find out who is illegally downloaded the films. The Democrat and Chronicle provides an update on the case:
“In recent court orders, U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Wolford allowed Delaware-based Strike 3 Holdings to subpoena internet providers to try to determine the identities of more than two dozen western New York residents — just under half of them from the Rochester region — who may have committed copyright infringement crimes. Strike 3 alleges that the unknown individuals illegally downloaded and in some cases distributed Strike 3 films.
Strike 3 distributes its films through adult website subscription services and through DVDs. The company now has about 1,200 similar actions across the country, typically asking for $150,000, and some have culminated in monetary settlements.”
The U.S. District judge has agreed to temporarily block the subpoena information from going public since these home addresses don’t directly reveal who in the household may have committed the copyright crime.
Discuss with a copyright infringement attorney all your Strike 3 case options
You have three choices in deciding how you want to handle your case:
- You can file a motion to quash before it goes to court- this only works in certain limited circumstances. Contact us to discuss if this is the right option for you.
- You can fight it.
It may be a case of mistaken identity. Perhaps someone outside the home or office used the defendant’s IP address without their knowledge. Whatever may have happened, if you do not believe you should have received this subpoena, you can decide to fight in court.
Antonelli Law will fight back vigorously on your behalf.
- You can anonymously settle the case.
Anonymously settling through Antonelli Law ensures that:
- All claims up through the settlement date (whether they are known or unknown) are covered. This means that you cannot be sued again by the same company for any additional alleged download activity that occurred before the settlement date.
- You as a ‘Subscriber’ are released, not just your IP address. Meaning you are still covered if multiple IP addresses were used in any downloading activity.
- Our fee is flat rate, and we negotiate the best settlement possible on your behalf. We have successfully negotiated numerous anonymous settlements that were lower than the original amount demanded by the movie company.
