BitTorrent Copyright Infringement Litigation Flourishes in Illinois

The past three months have seen unprecedented copyright infringement litigation activity in the Northern District of Illinois. Hundreds of internet subscribers have and will receive notices in the mail from their Internet Service Providers notifying them that a subpoena has been issued seeking their name and address for the purposes of litigation. We can help. Attorney Erin Russell has many years of experience representing defendants in cases filed by copyright holders who elect to enforce their rights under the Copyright Act against BitTorrent users, and was one of the first attorneys in the area to be involved in this type of litigation. As such, she is one of the most experienced attorneys in the country when it comes to BitTorrent cases.  Some of those cases are litigated, and some, like 99% of all civil cases in the United States, are settled. Erin has experience advising clients on their exposure (how much you could stand to win or lose), and your chances of prevailing if you choose to litigate. Many people, for a variety of reasons, choose to settle. Some choose to fight. 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.

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 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.
