Why Did Strike 3 Holdings LLC Contact Me?
The notice you have received is to notify you that the Strike 3 Holdings company is seeking your personal information, including your full name and address so that they can sue you for copyright infringement.
If you have just received this notice you are still anonymous. Strike 3 Holdings does not yet know who you are. While you are still anonymous during this time, you may have several options on how you would like to proceed or handle your specific case.
It’s important to note that the longer you wait, the fewer options you will have that are available to you, and you could lose some of your negotiating power.
Whether or not you did it, you’re still going to be sued. At this point as Strike 3 Holdings thinks you did, the court believes they have enough evidence for the case to proceed.
You now have three options available to you:
1. Settle your case out of court
2. File a Motion to Quash
3. Fight back in court
If you choose to settle, having an attorney experienced in these types of cases may help you negotiate a lower Strike 3 Holdings settlement amount. We aggressively negotiate settlement amounts for our clients and will fight for you until your case is resolved entirely.
No, we do not recommend that you ignore the Strike 3 Holdings subpoena. This subpoena is real and is not a scam as you are being sued for copyright infringement in federal court.
Right now you are known to the court as John Doe. If you ignored your subpoena your internet service provider will likely release your name to Strike 3 Holdings LLC’s lawyers. Once the company 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 be served with a court summons.
Under no circumstances should you ever ignore a court summons.
Many clients don’t mind losing their anonymity, but the downside to ignoring your Strike 3 Holdings subpoena and receiving a summons is that your options moving forward are more limited.
