I found myself dealing with a copyright infringement subpoena I received from my ISP. After doing a lot of research, I found Mr. Antonelli and his law firm. In my initial consultation, Mr. Antonelli was upfront about all the scenarios that could play out. I really appreciated his insight and the estimations he gave. It was spot on. Throughout the course of navigating this issue, Mr. Antonelli was responsive to all my questions and concerns. He was on top of everything. I would highly recommend utilizing his services if you face a similar situation.
Who Is Strike 3 Holdings?
Strike 3 Holdings LLC is a company that produces adult pornographic films. Their adult films are published under the subscription sites Blacked, Vixen, and Tushy. They are currently filing federal lawsuits, as well as lawsuits in Florida State Court, for copyright infringement.
If you received a notice from your Internet Service Provider (AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, etc.) and a copy of a subpoena from a company called Strike 3 Holdings, it is likely because you have been served with a subpoena and are about to be sued.
The company is likely accusing you, or someone in your home or office, of illegally downloading Strike 3 Holding’s adult films, most likely through BitTorrent sharing software. Essentially, this is a lawsuit accusing you of copyright infringement that can be more embarrassing to some people due to the adult nature of the films.
How Did Strike 3 Holdings Find Me?
Each internet connection has a unique IP address that is specific to that connection. By using a variety of methods and technology, Strike 3 Holdings LLC was allegedly able to track illegal downloads of their content to your unique IP address.
Once Strike 3 Holdings has your IP address, they can do a ‘reverse lookup.’ This is how they figure out who provides the internet to your home (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, etc.).
By knowing both your IP address and your internet provider, Strike 3 Holdings then filed a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement and asked a judge for permission to send a subpoena to your internet provider. This subpoena is requesting your name and address.
The notice you received is your internet provider letting you know your personal information is being requested. Before your internet provider releases this information, they send the subpoena notification to you.
When you first receive this notification, you are still likely anonymous. The court and Strike 3 Holdings still know you as ‘John Doe.’ Typically, you have 30 days or less from the day you receive the notification to decide how you want to handle your case. The longer you wait, the fewer options you’ll have.
