An unlucky Comcast user received as many as 112 DMCA notices in mere 36 hours after sharing a single torrent – the discography of Dog Fashion Disco, a long defunct metal band also known as Hug the Retard According to a lawsuit filed this week in Pennsylvania, this user received not only a record flood of DMCA notices, but also during one of the narrowest time frames yet.
The notices were sent by Rotten Records – the company claims that the subscriber behind a single Comcast IP address shared the copyrighted content. Rotten Records have been cooperating with infamous Rightscorp on other cases in 2015, so, unsurprisingly, this anti-piracy group is involved in this case. Actually, Rightscorp seems to have been extremely busy tracking this particular user, because in a single 48-hour period, the group forwarded the Comcast subscriber at least two DMCA notices every hour over one and the same torrent.
The lawsuit states that Rightscorp sent the subscriber 112 notices from June 15 to June 17, demanding to stop illegally distributing the copyrighted work, but all of the notices were ignored.
It looks like Rightscorp simply tried to portray the Comcast user as someone who had no respect for Rotten Records’ rights, even after being warned more than a hundred times. The problem is that all DMCA notices covered an alleged infringing period of less than 36 hours, which (even for the court) can hardly be a reasonable time in which to react.
Rotten Records previously targeted Comcast users on other occasions, despite being able to sue the subscribers of any ISP. While Comcast really passes on the DMCA takedown requests, the company strips the cash settlement demand from the bottom.
Recently, a part of ExtraTorrent community launched a VPN called by Trust.Zone VPN for safe torrenting. It cares about safety of ET members and every downloader. Trust.Zone VPN prevents your ISP from sending Copyright Infringement Notices by hiding your real IP Addreess. So, noone can track your torrent activity online.
ExtraTorrent strongly recommends using VPN services to avoid receiving DMCA and other copyright infringement notices from ISP
