P2P Lawsuits Reduced from 4,577 to 140

The US Copyright Group complies with the order of US District Judge and submits an amended list of defendants it is going to sue. However, this time the copyright outfit only included those defendants “whom it reasonably believes the court has jurisdiction over.” Revised list shows only 139 unidentified IP addresses (instead of the original 4,577) and 1 named defendant.

The U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer ordered the USCG late last month to identify the defendants the copyright group was going to sue, but include only those whom the Court has jurisdiction over. The time given was until December 6th. It was clear that such ruling became a dramatic blow to the USCG’s hopes of a single lawsuit and of reduced litigation cost.

Now the list stands at a mere 140: 139 Does and 1 named Defendant – Adrienne Neal. Differs much from the initial 4,577, doesn’t it? As for the remaining 4,437 IP addresses, the US Copyright Group has already lined up over 15 law firms all over the country in order to start filing individual lawsuits against subscribers in their respective areas.

Nevertheless, even the revised list includes IP addresses that appeared to be well beyond Rosemary Collyer’s jurisdiction, so it’s not clear whether she accepts the list at all or not. Among the IPs there are some from Honolulu, Chicago and Columbus, for example.

In its complaint, the US Copyright Group rehashed the very same argument the outfit made earlier at the beginning of the campaign: it claimed that each P2P user was part of a swarm, and, therefore, of the same “transaction” liable for sharing copyrighted content. In its brief, the USCG said that due to the nature of the swarm downloads, each infringer is simultaneously stealing copyrighted content from lots of broadband providers in many jurisdictions all over the country.

The argument the USCG cites is Rule 20 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. It says that defendants may be joined into one case if they have a “right to relief” from the “same transaction” they were jointly part of.

Now, it seems like the US Copyright Group is going to keep standing on using Rule 20 in the case. Meanwhile, the U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer has already asked the outfit to make a convincing case as to why the complaints against subscribers not residing in the DC area should not be dismissed.

menahunie avatarUSCG still keeps trying to pervert civil procedure to fit a round peg in a square hole; it won't work..
They state they are going to "hire" lawyers in the "defendants" area?
Yea Hire; they will have to given their track record of amounts being won and the ability for the defendants to pay.
From the article USCG states they are suing P2P'rs for "DOWNLOADING" and then demanding millions of dollars in undocumented unproven damages. ALL THIS FOR DOWNLOADING - NOT UPLOADING?
Thing is the USCG will have to prove anyone who "shared" a file; really shared anything?
An IP address and a file name doesn't make it hard proof of anything. The USCG needs the hard drive of the "defendant" and search it to get their "Hard Proof"...
So it is to the benefit of the "defendant" NOT^ TO LET THE USCG GET THEIR HARD DRIVE.
I know of people that will only and the smart way to keep their data on external usb drives in a degaussing box; they hear something funny they flip a switch and what proof??
Even if they get the computer and a client bit torrent is on it with the tracker files; IT STILL IS NOT THE "COPYRIGHT" FILE TO BE USED AS PROOF. Unless the USCG is going to scream from the courts roof top; see they downloaded a tracker and that is proof they violated copyright and we win millions - NOT...

Brynn217 avatarVPN Here... but I am looking for a cheap VPN that will not give you up under pressure... StrongVPN has a company policy of no Illegal activity, and when the MPAA contacts them they cut you off temporarily until you delete the offending file from your HD (based on the Honor System).. just click the link to say its done and your back online.... but I still don't like the records they keep...

In any case.. I plan on upgrading my 3.25TB w/ 3HD to a full 10TB RAID system with the Raid case hidden somewhere.... (In 3 months time...) I am experimenting now with Roxio and Blue-ray Burning.. but that is slow, anyone know of a better program like ConvertX for Blue-rays? I want a ConvertXto1080pBR!! Oh where are you

YES! YES! YES! It's about time someone took a stand and attempted to do something. I don't care if the USCG is a "for profit" endeavor or not. All you people out there stealing movies and content for nothing -- where the hell are your scruples? Your conscience? Would you go into a Best Buy and steal equipment, if you could get away with it? (Yeah, I know some of you would....)

There is NO difference between stealing the content of a movie, and a piece of hardware. The difference is in the "tangibility" of it, but because a movie can NOW be "non-tangible" in 1's and 0's, this doesn't mean it's no longer theft.

When you steal a movie, you are hurting the independent filmmaker, the independent producer or director, MOST of whom struggle to eek out a living as an artist. Yes, the major studios get hurt too, and I understand no one would care about their "pain." But the little guy, the producers and the directors, most of whom are not the fat cat rich boys, are hurt more than anything else. I wish people could understand that, but many of you simple don't. Or don't want to.

As a producer myself, MANY of my colleagues do not make a living solely through their movies. Some of the more well-known ones do, but many of the non-famous ones don't. They struggle to make a living creating entertainment, for the public. Think about it, next time you steal. Just because it wasn't a physical product from a store, does not make it innocent or justifiable.

Why not just scrap copyright?

Then it will not be worth creating anything original because the creators won't get paid.

Then there will be no new movies, music, books, etc.

Then there will be nothing for Google and Joe Blow to pirate.

Job done.


Google didn't pirate anything. Joe Blow did it, Google just did its job as a search provider.

yep, your right, But at Best Buy I can test out the receiver before I buy it, listen to the speakers, watch the TV etc. And determine IF I will like it before I buy it.

I can go to wal-mart and try on a pair of pants, or a t-shirt before I buy it.

I can download a game demo, and play it for quite some time before I buy it. All to see IF I want to.

Now, with the latest movies, they show you the Best 30 seconds of the movie in the ad, and the REST SUCKS.

I am a try before I buy kind of person, and I will happily admit it.

Yep, I downloaded Avatar - then I went and watched it on iMax! Next I will buy the Blu Ray version (WHEN the 3d version ships). Did I do anything illegal? Yep. Immoral? Nope. I wanted to be sure I was getting what I paid for. And in the end, I bought it, because it was worth paying for.

Please. Give me a break. You make it sound like these people are doing this for us, the public, out of the kindness of their hearts and for no other reason. I agree that downloading movies is wrong, but please don't try to make it sound like the producers and directors of independent films do it just to entertain the public at large. They do it for many reasons some of which are greed, in that they hope to land that big movie job or they do it for the fame, but I doubt a single one of them does it simply because they want to entertain the average Joe on the street.

but if I wasn't going to buy your sh*tty movie anyway... you didn't lose anything. Except maybe I'll go into work tomorrow and tell someone I saw a cool movie and they'll go pick it up. If not, you weren't going to make any money off me anyway.
