Chicago Internet Subscribers Receiving Subpoena Notifications for "London Has Fallen" infringement cases

In June and July of 2016, the owner of the rights to the film "London Has Fallen" filed numerous copyright infringement lawsuits against a few hundred Chicago-area residents. They asked, and received, permission from the court to subpoena the names and addresses of the alleged infringers. The cable company is now sending notification letters to subscribers advising them that their identities are being sought by the plaintiff.

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. 

3. Getting sued for copyright infringement of a single film is not going to ruin you financially. 

4. If you act sooner rather than later, you can avoid having your name disclosed to the plaintiff and can avoid having your name made public in the case. 

5. Attorney Erin Russell has handled more than a thousand BitTorrent defense cases involving a single film being downloaded and has never had a case fail to be resolved in a way that the defendant could afford.
