In September of 2016, the owner of the rights to the film "London Has Fallen" added to their burgeoning roster of cases by filing copyright infringement lawsuits against hundreds of Chicago-area residents. The Court gave them permission to subpoena the names and addresses of the defendants, and the cable company is now sending notification letters to subscribers warning them that their identities are being sought by the plaintiff. If you receive a letter regarding these cases from Comcast DO NOT IGNORE IT.
Most people are worried and afraid when they receive one of these letters. There are a few things you should know before you read any further:
1. This is a manageable problem.
2. You have good options, and you can choose what happens next. The worst thing you can do is ignore it or wait to "see what happens".
3. Getting sued for copyright infringement of a single film is not going to ruin your life. It's just something you need to address and handle.
4. If you act sooner rather than later when you receive a letter from your internet provider, you can avoid having your name disclosed to the plaintiff and can avoid having your name made public in the case. Settlements can be reached anonymously.
5. Attorney Erin Russell has represented more than a thousand BitTorrent defendants in cases involving a single film being downloaded. Some of those cases were settled, and some were dismissed outright. Your case can be worked out without it affecting your credit or involving public records.
6. Everything will be ok!
