What Is A Strike 3 Holdings LLC Subpoena?
Did you receive a subpoena in the mail from your internet provider regarding a company called Strike 3 Holdings LLC? Are you worried it could be a scam or a serious lawsuit? Antonelli Law is here to help assist you in understanding your copyright infringement lawsuit.
Is My Strike 3 Holdings LLC Subpoena Real?
If you received a notice from your internet provider informing you that a company known as Strike 3 Holdings LLC is seeking your personal information, they are likely contacting your ISP to get your details so that they can sue you for copyright infringement for allegedly downloading their films without paying the appropriate licensing fees.
If you have only just received your notice from your provider, you are still considered anonymous to the Strike 3 Holdings LLC company. While you are anonymous, there are several options for you to choose from on how you would like to proceed. However, the longer you wait the fewer options you may have, and you may also lose some negotiating power.
The first thing to understand is that this subpoena is real and is not a scam. You are being notified that you are being sued for copyright infringement in federal court. When receiving your documentation, you are known to the court as John Doe. If you ignore the subpoena, your internet service will likely release your name to Strike 3 Holdings LLC’s lawyers.
As soon as 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. After this, you will then be served with a court summons.
Under no circumstances should you ever ignore a court summons.
Although some clients do not mind losing their anonymity, the downside to ignoring your subpoena and receiving a summons is that your options moving forward are limited. You will lose some of your negotiation power as mentioned above.
