Entertainment Industry Will Offer to Settle for $10

Entertainment Industry Will Offer to Settle for $10

The latest media report revealed that the entertaining industry developed a new tactic, which includes sending out notification e-mails to suspected copyright violators in the United States. Such notifications are sent out by a law firm residing in Los Angeles. The outfit named Digital Rights Corps is currently informing the recipients that they might have to pay up to $150,000 because of their unauthorized activities. However, the company offers the Internet users to settle for just $10. The settlement is justified by a legal release that the infringers will receive from the rights holder.


The warning letters describe the dramatic situation and offer the recipients click on the provided link in order to login to the automated settlement system established by the law firm. At the system, the suspected infringers are able to settle for $10 per each case of infringement. As a result, they will get a legal release from the rights holder.

Local media were quite interested in the provided scheme, though it wasn’t entirely new. The difference is that earlier law firms suggested the infringers to settle for a far bigger amount. Digital Rights Corps’ representatives gave an interview, saying that they are currently monitoring file-sharing websites in order to obtain IP addresses of the suspected pirates. Internet service providers are afterward informed and advised to send settlement offers. Of course, Rightscorps takes its cut from those settlements, but during the interview they didn’t reveal how many of these settlements had already been made.

Although, as has been already said, it’s not the first time when the companies make use of such methods, up to date the $10 settlement model may be regarded as a very successful one. However, the legitimacy of this approach is still questionable.

Brynn217 avatarNot to mention that the settle is from the MPAA... so the law firm gets $2 and the MPAA gets $8 and nobody else gets any right? I am sure this is a firm business model for them too.... SO I would request some accounting from these crooks... because if I downloaded a TS copy that is Video 3/Cam Audio then I download the BDR copy later on, I would only wanna pay once for the same movie in question.... and even If I ONLY downloaded the TS or CAM copy, IF I settled, I'd be wanting my Blu-ray since its the same as buying the movie.....

and be sure, I'm not gonna be paying anything for some piece of crap that Hollywood is trying to swindle everyone on to begin with.... People just gotta be smarter than that, once you pay their $10 they gonna be watching you and you are going to be getting ALOT MORE NOTICES.... its $10 per download, and they are gonna hit you after they have you for like 100 downloads clip...

No avatarPay the $10 and you're setting the precedent for future lawsuits and the end of free p2p transactions. As it always is with these things, this is nothing short of a crafty way to sucker us all and eventually get back the control they lost when we all got sick of overpaying for shite... that's just the way I look at it, feel free to disagree but I'm thinking the "entertainment industry" is a rotten f-ing industry which used to make us pay whatever they wanted so we could buy a cd or record with one good track and up to 20 other shite ones, etc... I say screw that! If I like a movie or cd I buy it anyways, but I sample it first for free and it's not like they "The Entertainment industry moguls/artists, etc..." are living in shitty rat-infested apartments, eating mac & cheese and drinking cheap cider because of downloads, screw the lot of them. Make cds cheap, DVDs cheaper, etc... Stop living in mansions and living extravagant, decadence & diamond encrusted lives and then we'll be even! These people make too much money and I for one am sick of "picking up their tabs"! "INTERNET PIRACY IS NOT A CRIME! It's payback!"

I completely agree. It is payback! For all the $h1tty albums and cassettes and video tapes and CDs and DVDs I've bought that sucked a$$! Payback, baby!

Slickinator avatarsee in canada i noticed that at a london drugs store they were adding a copyright levy to its blank media ... which intails that since i paid i get access as legal sharing in my eyes ........and so does this mean if you pay the 10 dollars its like paying for the right to do it as it comes from the rights holders too? its like they are saying if the share was an accident here only pay 10 bucks and we make it legal for you thanx have a nice day lol
