Another BitTorrent Mass Lawsuit Rejected

Another BitTorrent Mass Lawsuit Rejected

Around 1,000 subpoenas within a mass BitTorrent lawsuit have been rejected by the American District Judge Faith S. Hochberg. The case involved a lot of Internet users who were accused of illegal downloading of the latest album Dark Adrenaline by Italian metal band Lacuna Coil.

A few months ago, the label named Nuclear Blast Records, which signed metal band All Shall Perish, was trying to pursue eighty BitTorrent users alleged of having downloaded the latest album of All Shall Perish through BitTorrent websites. Today a similar lawsuit is filed by Century Media Records – the record label of Italian Lacuna Coil.

Faith S. Hochberg, the judge ruling in the lawsuit, decided that the lawsuit wrongly joined too many defendants together. As such, he has voided all of their claims, except one, saying that there must be some kind of a connection between the defendants aside from the shared content and method of distribution. In other words, the judge thinks that the defendants must be simultaneously involved in the same transaction with the same downloader.

The lawsuit in question had been launched by a New Jersey attorney representing Century Media Records. Like in most of the largest file-sharing cases, the attorney chose to hire a law firm which specialized in tracking the IP addresses alleged of being involved in illegal distribution of the content. Then, they would have subpoenas issued for each respective IP address in order to force ISPs to find their subscribers and threaten them with an enormous copyright trial. This is how people are usually forced to settle the case and agree to pay a few thousand dollars to get rid of the problem. However, users who are ready to fight back can hire a lawyer and give it a try.

ATC_Controller avatarYou can't blame them for trying, cause in the end it's highly unlikely that someone would pay a regular dime for Italian metal unless forced to by a court...

fadevenom avatarYou cannot put the blame on Lacuna Coil. It is all the record companies doing. 99% of the time the artists don't even know that the lawsuit exists.

@gameboy360: no not even close to that # download, its more like 10% if that.

"Mass Lawsuit Rejected" this is y they are trying to take matters in there own hands and scare people from downloading. DON'T LET IT!

No avatarOne result of that album being downloaded was that I went and bought a copy of it, I then went to see them in concert & bought t-shirts there.
Since then I have also bought older albums too.
And they say downloading is bad for the artists ?
Artists like these only get played on "specialist" radio or tv stations because they are not mainstream music.
Downloading does not cost as much as they predict, They always fail to mention that an awful lot of downloaded material would never even have been considered for purchase

Embolism avatarPromotion through torrents is the only progressive way forward and the few that download it and then go to see them and buy their merchandise only profit the artist,band or film.
If they prosecute on copyright infringement they will actually loose revenue in the long run through the free distribution and promotion afforded them by P2P.
