What is the Criminal Productions Lawsuit About?
Criminal Productions, Inc. is filing federal copyright infringement lawsuits involving the film titled “Criminal” with Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Costner, and Gary Oldman. The film plot involves the implantation of a dead CIA agent’s memories into the mind of a convict.
Like other BitTorrent peer-to-peer file-sharing cases,
Criminal Productions, Inc. accuses defendants of copyright infringement by using software and the internet to obtain the film “Criminal” without paying the appropriate license fee.
Usually your first notice about the Criminal Productions Inc. lawsuit is a letter from your ISP such as AT&T, CenturyLink, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner, or Verizon and a subpoena. The letter notifies you that the ISP has been subpoenaed to release your name to the plaintiff.
The letter often mentions your right to file in court a motion to quash or vacate the subpoena. In the case of Criminal Productions, Inc, once your name is released you are probably going to receive a letter from the attorneys who represent Criminal Productions, Inc. offering a settlement although you could immediately named in a lawsuit and served with a summons and complaint. Don’t call them, you can incriminate yourself! Call us for a free attorney consultation at 312-201-8310.
To date, Criminal Productions, Inc. has filed lawsuits in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington. The company is represented by the law firm Crowell Law in Oregon, Gregory Collins in Arizona, Scott Kannady in Colorado, Mike Hierl in Illinois, and David Lowe in Washington.

Antonelli Law is Very Experienced Defending BT Claims
Antonelli Law has represented nearly 2,000 clients dealing with copyright trolls and satellite piracy trolls. We have gained a great deal of insight into what works and what is a waste of your time and money. We have no desire to have you spin your wheels with legal work that does not advance your defense and only racks up lawyer fees. However, we are experienced litigators and are prepared to defend clients vigorously. Either way, we will never put our interests ahead of your own.
Hiring Antonelli Law Is No More Expensive than Hiring a Local Attorney in Your State
Antonelli Law’s numerous federal court admissions, local counsel affiliations, and the nature of federal lawsuits allow us to effectively and cost-consciously represent you in your copyright infringement defense, no matter which state you live in – and no more expensively than a local attorney.
We are able to represent you in your federal case without being more expensive or more difficult to hire than hiring a local attorney because federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. Also, we do not charge for airline flights or flying travel charges. Clients pay only for the normal travel time to the courthouse any local attorney would charge.
Finally, we have affiliated local counsel in a number of states who have earned our trust and can appear in court on an expedited basis when necessary. We will of course be in court personally when necessary such as non-routine hearings or a trial.
