What Do I Do?
Firstly and most importantly- don’t ignore it! You have a limited amount of time to decide what to do; the longer you leave it, the fewer choices you’ll have. Typically, you have anywhere from two weeks to one month after receiving the ISP letter and VENICE PI LLC subpoena to decide what to do.

Secondly, deleting anything could make the penalties worse, don’t try to hide anything.

Don’t Sign Anything Before Speaking with a Copyright Defense Attorney
If you receive a Waiver of Service of Summons form in the mail, don’t sign it before speaking with an experienced attorney. Signing the Waiver of Service of Summons form you received in the mail from the movie company’s lawyer will in some cases lead to an unfair default or consent judgments against you.

Resolving Your VENICE PI LLC Case Anonymously
The easiest and most common way to resolve your VENICE PI LLC case is out of court. Choosing this option allows you to settle anonymously. At Antonelli Law, we charge a flat legal fee of somewhere between $750 – $1,000 for anonymous settlements.

Filing a Motion to Quash the VENICE PI LLC Subpoena You Received
The motion to quash argues that the lawsuit’s complaints claiming copyright infringement only claim a few ‘bits’ of data were transmitted by the IP address and user in question, therefore they do not provide enough evidence to make a claim on copyright infringement, and the court should throw out the copyright infringement lawsuit brought by VENICE PI LLC due to deficiency, then the court should also quash the subpoena for the user in question. At Antonelli Law, we offer a flat rate for filing motions to quash a subpoena.

This option is not without risks. Contact Antonelli’s experienced ISP subpoena defense lawyers to discuss this option further.

There are many defense standpoints from which we can tenaciously work to fight the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against Chicagoland users by VENICE PI LLC over the BRUCE WILLIS movie, “ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENICE”. One of the most common forms of defense is claiming that the user who transmitted the data for the movie “ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENICE” through a BitTorrent is not the user at this IP address.

This is a strong defense because the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against the defendant assumes that the defendant used their own IP address to transmit the data for the movie. However, hackers often disguise their IP addresses when illegally transmitting data online, so in many cases, the defendant is not at fault and did not commit copyright infringement by downloading “ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENICE” over a bit torrent.
