What Does Strike 3 Holdings Want?
If you received a notice from your internet service provider, they are letting you know that Strike 3 Holdings is seeking personal information such as your full name and address, so they can sue you for copyright infringement.
As you are anonymous at the time of receiving your notice, you will have several options available to you. However, these options will decrease as more time goes by. The longer an individual waits, the fewer options there may be, possibly losing some of your negotiating power.
Again, if you have just received this notice you are still anonymous. At this time Strike 3 Holdings does not yet know who you are.
If you are wondering how the company found you, each internet connection has a unique IP address that is specific to its connection. By using several methods and technology, the company was allegedly able to track the illegal downloads of their content to that IP address.
Once the company, Strike 3 Holdings, has your IP address, they can do a reverse lookup and find out who provides the internet to your home or office. This may include internet service providers such as Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Cox, etc.
By knowing your IP address and the internet provider, Strike 3 Holdings LLC filed a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement and asked a judge for permission to send a subpoena to your internet provider. This is a subpoena that requests 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 receive this notification, you are still 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. Again, the longer you wait, the fewer options you will have.

Now, whether or not you did download their content, you will still be sued. At this point, the company thinks you have and the court believes the company has enough evidence for the case to proceed.
