Anti-Piracy Group Will Sue File-Sharers’ Attorney

Graham Syfert, the attorney who has offered self-help to suspected BitTorrent downloaders, has been announced to be sued by “The Hurt Locker” filmmakers. The USCG (US Copyright Group) has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Voltage Pictures against the attorney, demanding $5000 for the “work” he has caused them. Graham Syfert, in response, has requested sanctions against the USCG, saying that their filing is “entirely insane.”

A lawyer Graham Syfert was selling the self-help documents this past summer, enabling people sued by anti-piracy law firm to defend themselves. Originally the forms were sold for $9.99, with the prices later doubling. Still, it was a bargain if compared to hiring paid attorneys. That was what the USCG was counting on: the settlement they suggested is approximately what a lawyer asks for to simply begin a defense, which would make people decide to settle en masse. However, their plans were ruined by Syfert, representing the set of forms for self-help, including a prepared Motion to Quash, Motion for Protective Support, Motion to Dismiss, and a Affidavit in Support, all fillable and with explicit instructions.

While the USCG was waiting for people to settle, Syfert was waiting for them to file all 3 documents to the lawyers, thus severely crippling the whole process and showing the anti-piracy law firm that they shouldn’t have joined so many defendants in one lawsuit. Of course, the USCG wasn’t happy with the situation at all. They even bought the documents to study, after which Syfert was given a call and threatened with sanctions. Moreover, they threatened everyone who was using those forms with doubling the settlement requests.

Two days ago Graham Syfert was filed a motion the USCG had just submitted to the court, demanding sanctions against him under federal law. They claimed that the mere 19 sets of documents people have already sent cost them $5000. In response, Syfert requested sanctions against the law firm because that’s completely insane.

Now, both documents filed by the parties are still awaiting a response from the court. Meanwhile, the situation looks like a very entertaining one. It’s clear that the USCG felt the attorney is obstructing their money-making scheme and started to worry. So, for those accused there’s at least one positive note – “The Hurt Locker” filmmakers are upset for a reason.
