Pay The Ghost, Chicago! Comcast and at&t notices are arriving in subpoena targets' mailboxes

PTG Nevada, LLC filed numerous BitTorrent copyright infringement cases in the Northern District of Illinois in January of 2016. Chicago area internet subscribers have now begun receiving notices that the attorneys for PTG are seeking their personal information to advance their case against them. 

PTG is suing for BitTorrent downloads and distribution of the movie "Pay the Ghost". If you received a letter from your cable company about a PTG lawsuit, the attorneys for the film are claiming that their experts caught you downloading and distributing the movie using a BitTorrent client. Copyright infringement litigation can be expensive and risky, but if you are innocent it can be worthwhile. In some instances a settlement is a wiser use of a defendant's money. 

Attorney Erin Russell is one of the most experienced BitTorrent defense attorneys in the country. She provides free phone consultations seven days per week at 312-994-2424. Erin can talk to you about your individual circumstances (whether you or someone you're responsible for did it) and help you to understand your potential exposure. She represents hundreds of accused downloaders every year and will apply her experience and knowledge to present you with your best options.

Receiving a notice about a case like the PTG cases can be intimidating, but our clients consistently tell us that they felt much more calm and in control after their consultation with Erin.
