Chicago Remains Top Copyright Troll Destination With ME2 Productions, UN4 Productions, and Venice PI ISP Notices and Settlement Demand Letters Flying

Chicago remains the national hotspot for the filing of copyright infringement lawsuits by copyright trolls such as ME2 Productions, Inc., UN4 Productions, Inc., and Venice PI, LLC. I represent defendants in lawsuits brought by these companies in Chicago and across the country. Over the past five years, I've represented more than 3,500 defendants targeted by copyright trolls, more than 1,600 of them in Illinois. Many of those individuals wanted to settle. Some wanted to litigate. If you received a subpoena notification letter from your ISP regarding one of these companies, or a settlement demand letter from the attorney who represents them, I can help. You can call me at 312-994-2424 any time from 9am to 10pm central time, seven days per week, for a free consultation. I am one of the most experienced BitTorrent defense attorneys in the country.

If you want to settle your case, I can help you reach a fair settlement in a timely manner. If you have just received the ISP subpoena notification from your cable company, it is still possible for you to settle your case anonymously, without the attorney for the film learning your identity. If your name has already been disclosed, and you got a letter from the attorney, it is not too late to resolve your case before your name actually becomes public. If you have been served a copy of the complaint and a summons, then your name is likely already public, but you should certainly act quickly to avoid having the court enter a judgment against you. In any of these instances, I can provide you with an assessment of your case that is based on your individual circumstances and my 13 years of litigation experience. You have choices about how to proceed and it is important for you to consult with an experienced attorney like me so you fully understand the potential risks and advantages to each of your options. I wrote a general explainer about BItTorrent copyright lawsuits on my website here. Feel free to check it out before you call, or simply call me at 312-994-2424 right away. Either way, I will be happy to answer all of your questions and provide you with all the information and legal advice you need to decide how to proceed.
