The US Copyright Group has brought copyright infringement claims against some 20,000 identified and unidentified Bittorrent users primarily for illegally distributing any of 5 different movies; Call of the Wild 3D, Uncross the Stars, Steam Experiment, Far Cry, or Gray Man. The Copyright Group has already forced a number of accused Bittorrent users to settle out of court (usually for a sum slightly under what it would cost the accused to litigate the claim, thus forcing many who are named as defendants in this action to unfairly give up their right to defend themselves in court).
If you have been made the target of the US Copyright Group’s overreaching mass lawsuit against Bittorrent users, contact a copyright infringement lawyer specializing in intellectual property issues, or call 866.936.7447.
The US Copyright Group makes the claim that;
“The effect of this technology makes every downloader also an uploader of the illegally transferred file(s)… this means that every ‘node’ or peer user who has a copy of the infringing copyrighted material on a torrent network must necessarily also be a source of download for that infringing file.”
Zeropaid noted that so far there have been five copyright infringement lawsuits filed in federal court in Washington D.C. and that already a handful of alleged infringers have settled out of court.
