Mass Lawsuit Outfit Enlisted Help of Numerous Law Firms

The USCG (US Copyright Group) is reported to enlist the help of several law firms throughout the US. Their task will be to file individual lawsuits against users accused of copyright infringement in their certain area that have rejected to settle out court. The whole action is planned to start sometime early in August.

The USCG is preparing to move to a new stage of its mass lawsuit which targets several thousands of BitTorrent file-sharers for uploading and exchanging online of the independent films like “Far Cry,” “Steam Experiment,” “Call of the Wild 3D” or the recent addition to the list – Academy Award-winning “The Hurt Locker”.

The USCG, based in DC, advertises itself as an outfit combining the advantages of technology companies and those of a group of law firms specializing on copyright. It is now reported to enlist the help of around 15 law firms throughout the US in order to start filing individual lawsuits against accused file-sharers in their respective districts that have rejected to settle out court. The lawsuits are expected to wash through the country sometime early next month.

The US Copyright Group has provided the accused users with an offer to settle out of court for about $1500. In case it gets no response, the fines are threatened to go up further. Of course, the real aim of this offer is to push file-sharers to pay the suggested amount to avoid trial, thus saving the group court costs that it would hardly ever recover. What it wants now is to encourage users to pay en masse.

EFF, ACLU, and Public Citizen have voiced an opposition to the USCG’s effort, which they describe as a veiled attempt to create a highly lucrative business model based on collecting settlements from as many individuals as possible. The EFF moved forward with helping people to defend themselves by lining up a number of lawyers willing to consult targeted file-sharers and help them to see all their options. The attorneys, if necessary, may also represent an individual by filing a motion to quash or litigating on his/her behalf.

Another source of help for individuals admitting their guilt or just willing not to draw the issue out any further is the law firm “The White Berberian Negotiations Group” from Arizona. It suggests everyone to hold negotiations to agree on a settlement lower than $1500 for around $250. It‘s worth noting that the offer comes with a money-back guarantee.

menahunie avatarWOW another 15 lawyers country wide.
I don't know about you? But any of those lawyers would demand the USCG show me the money given all the money they have lost in this mass law suit attempt..
The day anyone get an extortion letter they should demand the USCG provide them the "File" and ironclad proof they got it from the defendant; they can't then blow...
