Movie Producers Face Court Sanctions over Copyright Trolling

Movie Producers Face Court Sanctions over Copyright Trolling

The producers of Dallas Buyers Club face monetary sanctions for piracy extortion tactics used in their crackdown on file-sharers. An individual from California claims that the movie producers lack any evidence other than an IP-address and requests a monetary penalty of $36,000 for their "extortion" tactics.

As you may know, the producers of Dallas Buyers Club have successfully sued thousands of BitTorrent users after the movie was out: many of those cases ended up being settled for an undisclosed amount, because the movie makers obtained the identities of the Internet account holders believed to have pirated Dallas Buyers Club and approached them suggesting a deal.

However, not all alleged downloaders agreed to pay up – most of them didn’t respond to settlement letters or claimed that someone else must have downloaded the movie through their connection, as was the case with California resident Michael Amhari.

Earlier in 2016, the producers of Dallas Buyers Club claimed that he was linked to a “pirating” IP-address and demanded a settlement of $10,000. In response, the California resident denied the allegations and explained that he lived in an apartment residence at the university with an open Wi-Fi connection. The movie studio pursued its claim and increased the settlement demand to $14,000. After Amhari refused to pay up, the filmmakers moved for a default judgment. However, the judgment was set aside a few days ago, and now Michael Amhari is pushing back in court, asking for the case to be dismissed due to lack of evidence and demanding an award of attorney fees and monetary sanctions for the moviemaker’s extortion tactics in such cases.

Amhari points out that the movie producers progressively demanded more money from him, citing their own words: “Ahmari may not be the actual infringer as he shared a student apartment with other individuals,” after which they continued their case against him. As a result, the alleged pirate had to spend thousands of dollars on legal fees, though the filmmakers don’t have any evidence linking him to the actual download.

Michael Amhari is asking the court to dismiss the case due to the lack of evidence and requests $12,000 in attorney fees plus a monetary penalty of $36,000 for the abuse tactics used in such cases.

No avatarWhy is he only asking for $36K? If you ask for $36K you might get $15K. Ask for $100K.

analogkid6103 avatarInstead of asking for more money and looking as crooked as his opponent,he is asking for a reasonable amount a fact that will help his case. At least that's how I see this. And I hope he wins.

No avatarBasic mathematics. A ticket to watch the film at the cimema $10. The cost to purchase the DVD $14. Either way he has been persued for 1000% the face value. In light of this and to follow the claimants scaling demands it would only seem fair the plaintif should be included in this exorbitant extortion of adding 3 zeros in his counter claim. His counter claim, following the studios and claimants example should be $10,000,000 to $14,000,000.
It will certainly make them stop and think for a moment.

No avatar@Numpty,

You fail at basic mathematics. You clearly don't know what 1000% of $10-$14 is.
