If you’ve received a notice from your internet service provider (ISP) such as Verizon, Comcast, or AT&T as well as summons or subpoena from Malibu Media, you are being sued.
Malibu Media LLC has filed thousands of copyright infringement lawsuits over the past few years alleging that defendants illegally downloaded their adult film content without the appropriate licensing fees. Most commonly, defendants used file-sharing services such as BitTorrent.
Many have accused Malibu Media of “copyright trolling” and using these lawsuits for their own financial gain from settlements. Some judges have chosen to side with defendants while others have sided with Malibu Media. Either way, if you’re being sued, the time to take action is now.

What are my options and how do I resolve my Malibu Media case?
You typically have 3 options when fighting your case:
- Settle outside of court– We’ll work with you to settle your case anonymously if at all possible. As these cases are time-sensitive, the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get your case settled and avoid your name being publicly tied to the case.
- File a motion to quash– You may have the option to file a motion to quash in which case we will guide you through the entire process. This option may not be best for your specific case, but we can discuss it in your free consultation.
- Fight in court– You may also fight your case in court. Fighting your case in court tends to be the longest route in resolving your case, but can be beneficial under the right circumstances.
