Receiving A Strike 3 Holdings LCC Subpoena
Each internet connection will have a unique IP address that is specific to that connection. By using several methods and technology, Strik 3 Holdings LLC was allegedly able to track illegal downloads of their content to your IP address.
Once Strike 3 Holdings LLC has your IP address, they will do a ‘reverse lookup’ and find out who provides the internet to your home such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, etc.
By knowing both the IP address and the internet provider, Strike 3 Holdings then files a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement, asking a judge for permission to send a subpoena to the internet provider requesting the contact details behind that specific IP address.
The notice you received is from your internet provider letting you know your personal information is being requested.
When you first get this notification, you are still considered anonymous. The court and Strike 3 Holdings LLC will know you as ‘John Doe’. You typically have around 30 days or less from the day in which you received the notification to decide how you want to handle your specific case.
The longer you wait, the fewer options you will have.
Can I Ignore a Strike 3 Holdings LLC Subpoena?
Unfortunately, this is not a scam. You are being notified that you are likely about to be sued for copyright infringement in federal court. If you ignore the subpoena your internet service provider will likely release your name to Strike 3 Holdings LLC’s lawyers.
Once Strike 3 Holdings has your name, in almost all cases they will amend the complaint name in the public court documents from ‘John Doe’ to your name. You will then be served with a court summons.
Under no circumstances should you ever ignore a court summons.
Many clients don’t mind losing their anonymity, but the downside to ignoring your Strike 3 Holdings subpoena and receiving a summons is that your options moving forward are limited and you’ll lose some of your negotiating power.
