Who Is Strike 3 Holdings & What Do They Want?
Strike 3 Holdings LLC is a company that produces adult movies. They produce pornographic films published on various subscription sites known as Black, Vixen, and Tushy. If you have received a notice from your internet service provider (Fios, Cox, Xfinity, etc.), you are likely about to be sued by Strike 3 Holdings for alleged illegal downloading of their content.
Is My Strike 3 Holdings Subpoena Real?
The mailing notice you received from your internet service provider (ISP) is information to inform you that the company Strike 3 Holdings LLC is seeking your personal information. This can include information such as your full name and address. This is so Strike 3 Holdings LLC can sue you for copyright infringement.
However, if you just received this notice, you are likely still anonymous to the company; Strike 3 Holdings does not yet know who you are. While you are still anonymous, you will have several options for how you wish to continue with your case.
The longer you choose to wait after receiving this notice, the fewer options that may be available, and you could potentially lose some of your negotiating power.
How Did Strike 3 Holdings Send A Notice?
Each internet connection has a unique address known as an IP address. This address is specific to that connection.
By using various methods and technology, Strike 3 Holdings was able to allegedly track illegal downloads of their adult film content to your IP address.
Once Strike 3 Holdings has your unique IP address, they can do what is called a ‘reverse lookup’. Through this, they can figure out who provides the internet to your home. This can include companies such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, etc.
Now that the company knows your IP address and your internet provider, Strike 3 Holdings can file a federal lawsuit for copyright infringement and ask a judge for permission to send a subpoena to your internet provider. This subpoena requests your name and your 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.
Again, when you first receive this notification, you are still considered 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.
What Are My Strike 3 Holdings Case Options?
Whether or not you did download their content, you are still going to be sued. This is because at this point, Strike 3 Holdings believes you did, and the court believes they have enough evidence for the case to proceed.
At this time, you may have three options available to you:
- Settle your case out of court
- File a Motion to Quash
- Fight back in court
If you choose to settle, having an attorney experienced in these types of cases may help you negotiate a lower Strike 3 Holdings settlement amount.

Strike 3 Holdings Reviews
Outstanding! Quick and Easily Scheduled Consultation.
I received a notice from my ISP informing me that Strike 3 Holdings, LLC had served a subpoena requesting my name and address from them. They recommended obtaining counsel to resolve the matter. I was extremely stressed about my situation, literally sick. I researched Strike 3 Holdings, LLC and everything I read made me feel even worse. I had no idea the consequences for downloading copy right files could be so steep. I had heard of warning letters issued to people I know, but never something like a subpoena.
In my research I repeatedly saw references to Antonelli Law Ltd. I read every review of the firm and specifically Jeffrey Antonelli I could find. Everything was extremely positive. I searched for anything negative and only found a reference to a patent dispute with a competitor.
I contacted Antonelli Law through the web link and requested a free consultation the night I received the ISP letter. Antonelli Law quickly contacted me to request a free consultation with times available the next morning. At 8am I spoke directly with Jeffrey Antonelli. He was calm, reassuring and gave me advice for my situation. I asked questions which he quickly answered making me feel more at ease.
I had contacted companies via the internet before and filled out forms with my name and phone number or email address and they turned out to be scams resulting in relentless solicitation emails and phone calls. This did not happen after contacting Antonelli Law. I believe Antonelli Law is a legitimate company, and that Jeffrey Antonelli is an honest, excellent attorney.
