We provide legal services dedicated to defending and resolving internet-based copyright infringement and hacking allegations.
The adult film industry, and to a growing extent the independent film, music, and video game industries, has over the past three years carried the torch for what the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA) began roughly 10 years ago: pursuing who it perceives as copyright "pirates" and utterly disregarding the difference between those who actually use file-sharing technology for illegal purposes and those who simply neglected to secure their wireless routers.
Prenda Law, Lipscomb Eisenberg, Dunlap Grubb & Weaver, and Maddox Hoppe are just a few of many law firms pursuing BitTorrent file sharers and website hackers across the country. Individuals who have refused to settle claims are being sued individually and are left to deal with the ramifications; financial, occupational, and otherwise.
The subject matter, unfortunately, is being beaten to death in a blogosphere comprised largely of misled individuals and those more concerned with opining about plaintiff counsels than extolling pragmatic options. To this end, TorrentLitigation.com has been designed to be a clean, informative, and objective asset to help illuminate this most particular form of intellectual property litigation.
