Movie Studio Filed Lawsuit Against BitTorrent Swarm

Movie Studio Filed Lawsuit Against BitTorrent Swarm

With lots of people getting sued in the dozens of mass file-sharing lawsuits in the United States, the attorneys are starting to optimize their strategies. For example, last week there was an interesting case filed at the Southern California District Court: the movie studio Liberty Media launched a case against a “Swarm of November 16, 2010”.

Actually, the movie studio Liberty Media has been pretty active in pursuing alleged BitTorrent users recently. Back in January it urged file-sharers to hand themselves in and pay a thousand dollars voluntarily within an “amnesty” scheme. In fact, this somehow worked. Apart from this, Liberty Media has launched mare than a dozen mass lawsuits against several thousand of BitTorrent users accused of sharing its content without permission.

However, the latest case was something really new. The company didn’t join different defendants in a single suit, but launched a case against a BitTorrent swarm, explaining that the defendants are actually a group of Internet users or BitTorrent peers who have interconnected PCs for the sharing a single file, also called a “swarm”. Liberty Media argues that the torrent swarm isn’t an actual entity. Instead, it is made up of around a hundred people who act in concert with each other in order to infringe upon their copyright. The defendants are suspected to do so both by illicitly duplicating copyrighted movie and distributing it.

The Liberty Media attorneys then go on with a detailed description of a swarm work, listing the IP-address of each defendant and the exact time they joined it on the 16th of November, 2010. The detail explanation of how BitTorrent works is also enclosed to the complaint, as well as the description of how the suspected defendants cooperated to distribute the movies.

However, this is not all. The company complaints that the swarm and almost a hundred of Does are also guilty of a civil conspiracy, which is centered on the scheme to traffic in infringing material. Perhaps, Liberty Media made the emphasis on the swarm and the conspiracy trying to circumvent the jurisdiction and improper enjoinder problems affecting its previous lawsuits. But apart from such innovative approach, the purpose of the lawsuit is the same – the copyright owner wants to know who is hiding behind the IP-addresses.

wylde avatarLet it rest, we'll always beat you. You might get 0.0013% of us for 1 infringement out of 10000, but you are pushing sh1t uphill to pull this down. Sad pr1cks want us to pay $15USD to watch a cr4p movie, and, for us, we get a good movie 1 out of 50 theatre visits.

Hey, if it's a good flick, I'll package it properly and sell it myself and put the funds straight back into circulation, not top up my cash assest fund and hog the interest to a small few. Not to mention putting a gazzilion ISP call centre dumbos out of work cuz everybody is dropping their monthly data limits to 5GB instead of paying the big bucks for an unlimited line, then there's the server, VPN, and seedbox owners who'll also get reamed, too. The money generated and SHARED from sharing files is spread so far through the worlds GDP, and far outweighs any benefits produced by the greed of corporate slime.

PS - Of course nothing I take is sold, never has been, never will be.

Get off our backs you bottom feeding scumbags.

menahunie avatarwow californication at it again.
Suing swarm users despite no proof they violated anything except the claims swarm users are always doing something illegal. Also no proof anything in this swarm has any copyright material involving these people - movie studio.
This is the classic frivolous law suits and any judge that allows it needs to be removed from the bench and tested for drug use..
They are filing civil law suits and they do not even know who they are suiting let alone suing them for what?
That is like suing internet users because all internet users only use the internet for illegal purposes.
