64-Year-Old Teacher Accused of Pirating Movies

A former English teacher Emily Orlando was quite surprised to be accused of illegally downloading “Maximum Conviction”, a movie starring Steven Seagal. The same can be said by most of the other 370 defendants involved in the lawsuit.

Emily Orlando has repeatedly informed her students on the importance of copyright and the ethical issues it involves, so she was very surprised to receive a notice accusing her of unauthorized downloading “Maximum Conviction”. The English teacher was given a two-week-deadline to settle with $7.500 for Voltage Pictures or risk being find by $150.000.

In the meanwhile, the lawyer of Voltage Pictures refused to comment on the issue, but it became known that the magnitude of this lawsuit, involving over 371 people, is no uncharted territory for him, as he filed 9 other similar cases, rounding up to 1,000 defendants.

Speaking about the studio’s financial claims, the teacher expressed outrage, claiming that it is terrifying and nothing but a legal extortion. Even though she didn’t do anything, she now has to get a lawyer and fight the claims. As you know, quick settlements are the preferred method in such cases, normally by both parties, but it is not necessarily the best of choices.

In fact, the movie is worth $12.99 on Amazon, but the cases in question don’t seek that – actually, if all victims of commercial invoicing ultimately pay $2,000 or $3,000, the company will receive more than a million dollars in total.

Emily Orlando has talked with the rest of the defendants and encouraged them to not settle. Moreover, they may share the costs of the lawsuit. She found out that her ISP used dynamic IP addresses, which means that a subscriber can’t be linked to a specific/static IP address. Despite this fact, the ISP still gave away her personal details.

Of course, Emily Orlando had no idea of what BitTorrent network is until she received a letter. She admitted that she prefers films via Blockbuster or the TV. In the meantime, the lawyers admit that this is federal court and the average person will be intimidated by this and try to avoid any connections with the case.

The worst part is to know that your Internet service provider can sell you out faster than Judas, while such lawsuits’ projections on the US copyright law and the way it’s enforced are definitely flawed.

skreamer avatarThis can turn into a good story if they join and fight together.

One story I'm always eager to hear is exactly what info they use and how they must get it to file their claim in court. Has the file to be seen to be completely DL in one go? Does a person need to see the DL in progress or can software simply track and monitor us all 24/7. If the tracks lead to a proxy what do they do depending upon the country its in and it anonymity level. Lots of things highly important to us fighting them but I've never seen anything about it.

trialNerror avatarI was just thinking, yeah, this might be the start of a new leaf in America. It could be. I hope this woman does get all 371 defendants to stand up together and really show the Supreme Court just how ridiculous the studios are being. 7500$ for a 12$ movie is straight up bullszhit.

trolleater avatarOMG !! lol that is what they do, they put up movies and then watch who used bittorrent etc.. to download, then say that you gave it to thousands and demand money...copywright trolls...If this happens to you, do not respond, they are banking on the fast money, and if you do not pay it usually goes away as they do not want to pay the 350 usd per claim, so if you want to dl you should use a proxy or a vpn, I recommend a vpn that does not log usage like private internet access etc.. research. Knowledge is power.
P.S. You could not give me a Seagal movie nowadays are they are not worth a dollar US.

Ripping4Life avatarWell I think its sad.. This crap is happening all over the world and the power to be wants all of us to summit to one controlling bullshite.. Well I use torrents because, straight out I cant afford to take my kids to the movies or video shop and y should they miss out because Im pore and on disability pension, they r only kids. We r told as kids, freedom of speech and share what u have with others. Dont quote me but I think its in the Bible... lol. Let really think about this sort of crap they go on about. When u go pass a picture theater/Cinemas there r always lot of kids and family's there, so someone is making money or is it free now.. If they dont want all these DLs out there DONT charge some much in the first place to view or buy.. Im not a smart man but the writing is one the wall, if we dont stand together united we all will fall and they will win the fight, no more freedom of anything..

Warwicked avatarAt $7,500 per download, the studios will want people to download illegaly and make it tempting and easy as possible.

skreamer avatarDouble check your proxies. I recently used a what is my IP - type webpage and it saw through my High Anonymity proxy and nailed my true IP.

Also there is something about honeypots and KA but I've not come up with anything that tells me what honeypot status really means.

No avatarthis is going to happen over and over if we don't show people how to stay anonymous. it's the weakest that those money-thirsty idiots catch regularly. until laws change, people should think about privacy and not getting in trouble.

Embolism avatar@18 Has the right Idea,A honeypot has nothing to do with winnie the Pooh,it is either a monitored system which is observed to observe hacking attempts so as to learn of security flaws and breaches or more relevant to the subject an uploaded movie whereby they upload a piece of tripe from Steven seagull and monitor the IP addresses of those downloading it.A few of the defences for this outside of VPN`s are to use a firewall that clips the last octet of your IP address as well as safe-peer and a comprehensive block-list,port forwarding and a silent prayer. (:^D)

Embolism avatarFor those unfamiliar with clipped IP addresses it has long been a practice in Zone Alarms firewall and quite obvious if you next check other peers in the swarms IP`s.
