Option 1: Anonymously Settle with Malibu Media LLC

Getting sued is a terrible feeling. It can be especially stressful if this is the first time you’ve ever been sued.

Settling with Malibu Media LLC can make the situation go away faster and can buy you peace of mind. If you settle through Antonelli Law we will ensure you can settle and make the payment anonymously.

Unfortunately, this also means that you will have to pay a settlement regardless of whether or not you believe you should have to. We’ve found that many clients feel that the ability to ensure their anonymity and ending the process is worth the settlement.

Settling with Malibu Media LLC: The Pros

  • Your case will be resolved quickly
  • Your case is resolved anonymously from public records
  • We’ll ensure that you as a person (not just your IP address) are released so you can’t be sued again for any other supposed download activity that happened prior to your settlement

Settling with Strike 3 Holdings: The Cons

  • You will have to pay a settlement fee regardless of whether or not you feel you should have to

Option 2: Filing a Motion to Quash

Filing a motion to quash is essentially telling the court that the Complaint is so deficient that it cannot be repaired, because of either jurisdictional or technical reasons.

We believe a motion to quash can work in certain limited circumstances, but it is a risk.

While this may seem the best option on the surface, even if you win a motion to quash the subpoena, the movie company will probably have the right to file an amended lawsuit against you. If they do file an amended lawsuit, a second motion to quash may need to be filed. The judge may or may not throw the case out of court, and it is possible that Malibu Media LLC may appeal the decision to the appellate court.

The circumstances of each case are unique. Antonelli Law has been successful with multiple motions to quash and can provide expert advice on your case.

Motion to Quash Pros:

  • The case could be thrown out for multiple reasons
  • The movie company could be exposed if it was engaged in some kind of technical chicanery or unethical practices, and the case could fall apart

Motion to Quash Cons:

  • You may still get sued
  • You may lose your anonymity if the motion is denied

Option 3: Fight Malibu Media LLC in Court

We have helped several clients fight back against copyright infringement claims in court. If this is the right choice for you, we are tenacious, experienced litigators who can help fight back vigorously.

This is a federal case, so we can defend you in any federal court across the U.S.

Pros:

  • You could win the case and get damages, including legal fees

Cons:

  • You could lose the case and owe much more than the original settlement fee
  • You could lose your anonymity

 

Every defendant’s circumstances are different so it’s best to discuss your situation with an experienced ISP subpoena defense law firm, such as Antonelli Law.
