Judge Ordered Drafting a Notice for Mass BitTorrent Litigation

Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ordered the USCG (US Copyright Group), TWC (Time Warner Cable), and the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) to issue friendly notices for the accused users. The warnings are intended to help educate them about the lawsuit, as well as about their legal options in the case, like challenging the jurisdiction of the court. TWC mentioned at the hearing that it has no subscribers in the current court’s jurisdiction.


The USCG’s mass BitTorrent litigation against thousands of BitTorrent file-sharers has moved forward with a D.C. federal court hearing, where the EFF’s oral arguments were heard concerning the fact that the plaintiffs are improperly suing thousands of accused subscribers in a single case. The consumer group argues that this move is a shortcut which only deprives thousands people of fair access to individual justice, thereby violating their rights.

Recently Public Citizen, the EFF and the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) have joined their forces to invalidate the subpoenas submitted by the USCG for revealing the identities of accused subscribers. Their main argument for now is that D.C. courts can’t even hear these cases, as the US Copyright Group has yet to prove that the courts there have jurisdiction over the unknown defendants listed in the subpoenas for identifying. Even the USCG agrees at this point that an IP address can only point to a general geographic location for the subscribers. In addition, TWC (the ISP that earlier has been accused by the USCG of encouraging copyright violation by refusing to disclose the names of the accused users) pointed out that it doesn’t have a single user in the D.C., but yet has had to meet the USCG over there, because it keeps fighting to limit requested subpoenas to 28 IPs a month.

Judge ruled that the USCG actually did have a right to accuse the BitTorrent file-sharers of copyright infringement, but at the same time she wanted to make sure that the interests of the subscribers were protected too, so that they each at least had a chance to raise legal objections. That’s why she ordered all three organizations to team up for drafting a notice, which would be sent to the accused TWC’s subscribers.

The EFF still believes the jurisdictional issue is a very sore point, as it’s just unfair to make the accused to defend themselves in the D.C., as it would be too expensive for them.
