Strike 3 Holdings LLC Files Lawsuits Against New Jersey John Does
Strike 3 Holdings LLC is alleging New Jersey residents illegally downloaded their adult content without the proper licensing fees, most likely using a file-sharing software such as BitTorrent. Strike 3 Holdings LLC is a company that distributes adult films through the subscription-based websites Blacked, Vixen, and Tushy. A recent NJ.com article examines whether these suits count as extortion. One of Strike 3 Holdings lawyers weighs in:
“Lincoln Bandlow, a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, the national law firm that handles most of Strike 3 Holdings’ suits, said the company files the suits mainly as a deterrent and the settlement income makes up ‘a small fraction of revenue’ for the company.
‘Strike 3’s true revenue comes from its core business model, which is selling subscriptions to its websites,’ he said.
Many Strike 3 suits in New Jersey target defendants with at least 30 alleged downloads across many months or a year. Bandlow denied that Strike 3 targets people in certain states or zip codes, but federal court data shows that more than half of the company’s suits were filed against people in California, New York and New Jersey.”
