I noticed on the District of Minnesota new case filings report that a company called Strike Three Holdings has filed several copyright lawsuits against John Does. There hasn’t been much in the way of new copyright troll lawsuits in Minnesota for the past several years, but these seem to be cast from the same mold as many others filed nationwide.
Looking at one of the complaints, they allege that someone identified only by an IP address shared Strike Three’s supposedly award winning adult movies. They also claim that the copyrights were award winning, though I didn’t know there were awards for the copyrights too. They use the same investigator, IPP International, as most of the other copyright trolling lawsuits.
While I remain skeptical about the merits and motivations behind these lawsuits, they still need to be taken seriously and anyone receiving a subpoena should seek legal counsel.
If you are looking for representation to defend against these lawsuits, please call or email me to discuss.
