Two California adult movie studios, Third Degree Films and Patrick Collins Inc., have recently filed a copyright lawsuit against more than a hundred of Maryland residents for unauthorized downloading and sharing some of their movies. At the moment, none of the studios knew the names of the copyright infringers.

Now the situation has changed, as two of Maryland’s biggest Internet service providers – Comcast and Verizon – were ordered by the court to bring over data about twenty-two of their customers, which would help the plaintiffs to identify the people behind the IP addresses. Meanwhile, suspected Internet users are residing across the state in like fifteen cities.

Of course, the strategy employed by porn studios isn’t new. A number of cases throughout the United States were built around the list of IP addresses without real names behind it. The precedent was set by the Recording Industry Association of America when it has tried to establish the identities behind the IP addresses of Internet users ripping music off through Napster.

Patrick Collins Inc. launched the lawsuit back in June against 22 Joe Does who were suspected to download the porn video called “Cuties 2”. Another studio’s case involves 118 pirates who allegedly downloaded “Illegal Ass 2”. The plaintiffs asked a federal judge to order ISPs Verizon and Comcast to help the studio identify the Joe Does. In respond, the judge handed down an order saying that the studios own exclusive distribution rights to video that was being illegally shared in the web through P2P technology, BitTorrent. Therefore, the plaintiffs have been granted their request and the judge ordered both Verizon and Comcast to provide the required data.

Comcast replied that they didn’t just hand the private information over without due process. That’s why they published an announcement to let the subscribers know the company has been ordered by a judge. As for the industry observers, they call such cases “copyright trolls”, because the tactic employed is aimed at extracting quick money from settlements by threatening people with public disgrace and exposure. Indeed, the plaintiffs agreed to voluntarily drop the charges against the individual who has hired attorneys to defend him. Meanwhile, their own lawyer refused to comment on the situation.

No avatarIt's just an IP address. How can they publicly say who exactly determine it? To do so would be slanderous and they would be opening themselves to a lawsuit. That's like saying that your Dad was caught speeding when all they have is the license plate number. Not sure how a judge can even allow this kind of lawsuit. Should have been thrown out for lack of evidence.

Trugger avatarThe only positive is that this kind of crap is driving privacy technologies. The worse it gets, the more creative they will get(hopefully). So, the most popular Christmas gift will soon be a vpn, keep the sweater.

trialNerror avatarI still find it hilarious that ISP's don't care about what you upload, only care about what you download.

And another way to avoid this kind of trouble is to avoid using torrents.
There are other ways to download, especially if you don't want to spend the extra 10 bucks a month for some extra service.
I've been getting brand new stuff from file hosting sites (direct download links or DDLs) for the past few months and not a single copyright infringement email.
I know that's not really any safer as your IP is still on record, but the law isn't going after them right now, only torrents. So much focus on torrents leaves the other option wide open.

RUkiddin avatarWHAT? Why don't they like Maryland? Was it a 4.7 DVD ISO File?
Who can ever tell what the heck is COPYRIGHT Protected??
"They" should be forced to provide the MAC address of the Cable modem before any information about an I.P. is released by my I.S.P.
My I.P. Address rotates at least 3 times per month, I often unplug my cable modem for a while to receive a new address
Wasn't free porn what the internet is about anyway? LoL
Rock ON!

kingtiger01 avatara MAC address is inconclusive, they need the MAC address of the Client Computer. that proves what COMPUTER downloaded it. it still doesn't prove WHO THE PERSON who did it. its like borrowing a car, driving it down the highway speeding, with Dealer plates on it!

Regardless, Geesh, cant they see the free Advertising potential. They werent going to make a sale with these people anyways, in the first place!
