ISP Subpoena Defense Attorney
Have you received a Subpoena from your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), such as Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, or some onother ISP? Fighting against the disclosure of your name, address, and other identifying information is an important first to prevent a Plaintiff from obtaining your personal information and associating you to a lawsuit. With the ability of search engines today, a copyright infringement lawsuit can haunt your personal life and professional career for a life time.
In particular, many of the ISP subpoenas seeking the identity of a John Doe based on an IP address are founded on a legal complaint alleging a copyright violation of an embarrassing porn title.
It is unlikely that you will be able to stop the disclosure of your name, address and other identifying information without hiring an attorney with knowledge about ISP subpoena defense.
Copyright Trolls will use the subpoena to obtain your contact information. Once this happens, the Copyright Troll will harrass you at home and work. Fighting a copyright lawsuit is expensive.
Plaintiff copyright holders stand to obtain damages of $150,000.00 per instance of copyright infringement. Because of the potential for astrinomical damage awards, it is best to hire a copyright attorney knowledgable in ISP subpoena defense to prevent the Copyright Troll from learning your true identity. If the Copyright Troll does not learn your true identity, then the Copyright Troll cannot obtain or enforce statutory damages against you.
Tucker IP is dedicated to fight against the disclosure of your identity. Let a Firm attorney advise you of your legal rights and options.
DRAFTING YOUR OWN RESPONSES
Drafting your own motions and response to the ISP Subpoena is a huge mistake. In doing so, you risk exposing your identity to the Court and the Plaintiff. This plays into exactly what the Plaintiff wants and is seeking. Don’t make the same mistake as those before you. Hire Tucker IP to squash the ISP Subpoena.
CONTACTING THE PLAINTIFF
The Plaintiff WANTS you to proceed initially without an attorney because the Plaintiff will, in all likilihood, obtain the information they are seeking from your ISP. Once this happens, the Copyright Troll will contact you and demand large sums of money to settle the case. The Copyright Troll may even threaten that your name will be associated with embarrassing pornographic movie titles. Learn from the mistakes of those before you.
