For some reason, a number of California federal judges began to smash mass file-sharing lawsuits.

Over 2010, more than 5,000 pirates were pursued by On the Cheap LLC for copyright infringement: people were accused of downloading the adult video called Danielle Staub Raw. Last week, the judge threw out all but one out of those 5,010 suspected pirates, saying that no courtroom would be able to hold 200 people, let alone 5,000. In addition, the judge ordered the adult movie studio to provide extended data of their settlement activities. As far as the plaintiffs ignored his decision, the judge strongly attacked the movie studio.

He explained that the court’s concerns were heightened by On the Cheap’s refusal to file under seal its settlement letter and data about its settlement practices. Meanwhile, although the movie is sold for $19.95 on their own website, the public reports confirm that the company was demanding thousands of dollars from the defendants in other mass file-sharing cases. Here comes the moment when the judge raised a question of whether the video in question was even produced for selling or it was rather produced for purposes of generating litigation and settlements.

In other words, the US Constitution authorizes Congress to enact copyright legislation in order to “promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts.” However, if all the concerns of the court about the mass file-sharing lawsuits were true, it would appear that the copyright legislation was used in a massive collection scheme instead of promoting useful arts. The judge pointed out that 11 months after the complaint was filed, no defendant had been served, so he denied a motion to extend the service time.

The judge claimed that he didn’t condone copyright violation. Although he was in favor for settlements and mutual resolutions, it couldn’t justify “perverting” the joinder rules in order to create the problems mentioned above and offer to settle with unknown defendants.

Nevertheless, the adult movie studio was allowed to subpoena Internet service providers and create a list of names of people who stole the movie. About $140,000 went into the company’s pockets when 70 defendants decided to accept a settlement, and pay $2000 each. Now the company has to notify all 5,000 defendants by first-class mail and put an end to new settlements.
