More about your Joe Hand Promotions, Inc. letter and summons:

Why have I received this?
The letter from an attorney hired by Joe Hand Promotions, Inc., or your summons and lawsuit complaint relate to a federal copyright infringement lawsuit alleging that your commercial venue (such as a restaurant or bar) illegally streamed a pay per view event such as “Pacquiao v. Thurman” or “Mayweather v. McGregor,” usually by using a non-commercial (i.e. residential) satellite subscription, a pirate/black box, or a satellite subscription hack.

Is it real?
Yes, and ignoring it will reduce your options to fight it. If you are contacted by the pay per view company’s attorney prior to receiving a summons, we can help you try to resolve your case out of court. Settling out of court can be less expensive.

What proof do they have?
From what we’ve seen in previous cases, an investigator hired by the company personally visits the bar or restaurant to observe and/or videotape the alleged illegal broadcasting of the pay per view event. That leads to the filing of the complaint, which typically includes documentation of what they witnessed that night, as well as screenshots of the pay per view fight.

Can I get out of it?
Once you’ve received a letter from an attorney or have been served a summons and lawsuit complaint, there are a couple options available:

  • Resolve outside of court if you have not received a summons and lawsuit complaint.
  • Prepare to fight it in court. We are experienced litigators who fight back vigorously.

Fewer options will be available to you the longer you wait. We’ve helped nearly 3,000 clients across the US resolve their cases and can help you figure out the best course of action for you.

How much will it cost?

  • Some cases are resolved out of court. We can offer a flat fee for a settlement out of court as long as you have not been served with a summons and complaint.
  • Once you have a summons and complaint, you must take your case to court. However, we may still be able to offer a flat fee for clients who have received a summons for a set amount of work that may resolve the case.
  • Want to fight it? For cases that require a full-on legal defense, we will charge an hourly rate and will walk you through what to expect during our free consultation.

If you decide to ignore the summons and complaint you may get a default judgment against you. In the past, we’ve seen default judgments in the area of $15-$20,000. With our knowledge and experience in these types of cases, we can typically help protect businesses and can often negotiate lower settlements on your behalf.

We can explain what you can expect in legal fees once we know more about your individual case, whether it’s a flat fee or an hourly rate for defense in court.

What do I do now?

  • Schedule a free consultation. The best thing to do is to speak to an experienced copyright defense attorney as this is a swiftly changing area of law and we continually follow the latest developments. We understand the technology so are able to better defend you.
  • Don’t sign anything without your own legal representation.
  • Decide how you want to handle it.
  • Our consultations are free and we work nationwide.

An Overview of Copyright Infringement Cases

Who is Joe Hand Promotions, Inc. and What Are These Lawsuits About?

Joe Hand Promotions, Inc. is accusing defendants of copyright infringement, typically by using non-commercial satellite subscriptions in a commercial venue, satellite subscription hacks, or through old-fashioned pirate/black boxes to obtain pay per view events such as “Pacquiao v. Thurman” or  “Mayweather v. McGregor” without paying the appropriate commercial subscription or license fees.

Many of these cases allegedly involve business owners streaming the pay per view event in their bar or restaurant using a residential subscription instead of a commercial subscription, knowingly and unknowingly. Other cases involve the defendant having used a pirate/black box to obtain the film. No matter the circumstances, we can help guide you through your lawsuit.

We are headquartered in Illinois and have local counsel from coast to coast to help us efficiently and effectively settle and fight lawsuits in your state.

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 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.
