Cell Film Holdings Triggered Subpoenas In Federal Court Like Cell Phone Zombies

In July, August and September of 2016, the owner of the rights to the film "The Cell" filed copyright infringement lawsuits against hundreds alleged BitTorrent downloaders in California, Maryland, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington. The federal courts gave them permission to subpoena the names and addresses of the defendants, and the internet service providers are now sending notification letters to subscribers warning them that their identities are being sought by the plaintiff. Some people are already at the stage where they're receiving letters directly from the attorneys for Cell Film Holdings, LLC, the company that holds the rights to bring copyright infringement cases for the film. 

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 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. 

5. Attorney Erin Russell has handled more than a thousand BitTorrent defense cases involving a single film being downloaded. Some of those cases were settled, and some were dismissed outright.
