Movie Company Sued for Copyright Violation

Voltage Pictures is known worldwide for chasing down alleged pirates. However, now the company itself is being sued for copyright infringement – it turned out that Voltage promoted its own version of a Godzilla movie without receiving permission from its Japanese owner.

Today many companies are engaged in so-called “copyright trolling” all over the world, and they are usually connected with adult film companies. American movie producer Voltage Pictures is also known for creating good movies and being one of the most aggressive copyright trolls. Voltage has targeted thousands of file-sharers in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia, largely prevailing in these actions. However, the most recent case filed a few days ago in the United States suddenly saw the movie company on the receiving end of procedures.

The case concerns the company’s plans for a new film “Collosal” which contains a character that resembles Godzilla, known as the longest-running film franchise. The Japanese movie studio behind the Godzilla brand filed a lawsuit in the US court over the Voltage’s use of the Godzilla character and associated breaches of the copyrights and trademarks. Indeed, it turned out that the image of Godzilla used by Voltage as taken from promotional content published by the Japanese company at the release of last year movie, Godzilla. In addition, Voltage has never sought permission to exploit the Godzilla character. When the Japanese rights owner asked Voltage to cease and desist, the company refused.

Now the Japanese company demands all profits generated by Voltage as a result of its “infringing activities” or $150,000 in statutory damages for each case of infringement. Apparently, being on the wrong end of the table will be a novel experience for Voltage.

Voltage Pictures recently won a case to reveal the identities of thousands of alleged file-sharers in Australia and is currently negotiating its first letters to the accused with a Federal court. In the upcoming court hearing, Voltage will experience resistance against its so-called “speculative invoicing” business model. In the meantime, Australian Internet service provider iiNet is providing comprehensive advice to its subscribers who are affected by Voltage’s action. The ISP is even cooperating with a law firm to be ready to provide pro-bono services.
