Malibu Media, LLC Files Over 190 Copyright Infringement Lawsuits in the U.S. District Courts of 9 States in First 3 Months of 2017

Malibu Media, LLC continues to be one of the most prolific copyright infringement plaintiff in the United States. They continue to file large numbers of cases nationwide.  Malibu Media, LLC has started off 2017 by filing over one hundred ninety (190) class action suits in U.S. District Courts in nine (9) states across the Nation.


Attorney Erin Russell has many years of experience representing defendants in cases filed by Malibu. Some of those cases are litigated, and some, like 99% of all civil cases in the United States, are settled. She has experience advising clients on their exposure (how much they could stand to win or lose), and their chances of prevailing if they choose to litigate. Many clients, for a variety of reasons, choose to settle. Erin can advise you on the best strategy to choose to protect your assets and minimize your exposure. Erin provides free, 30-minute telephone consultations seven days per week at 312-994-2424. Each Malibu case involves a different number of alleged infringements, so it is a good idea to have the letter you received from your Internet Service Provider handy when you call, or at a minimum to know the docket number for your case.

Early action is always best in litigation. The less time and effort spent by the plaintiff, the easier and less expensive it can be to settle if that is what you choose to do. If you have received a letter from your Internet Service Provider, or especially if you have been served a summons and complaint, the safest course of action is to call and seek legal advice immediately. It has always been our experience that early action gleans better results. If you've been waiting to seek help, don't worry. Just don't wait any longer. Call today and Erin would be happy to talk with you about your options and the possible and likely outcomes.
