SAN FRANCISCO – A Texas media company has filed suit against an unknown internet user over allegations of copyright infringement.
Dallas Buyers Club LLC filed a complaint on April 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Doe-188.8.131.52, alleging that the subscriber knowingly distributed infringing copies of plaintiff's motion picture.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages as a result of the movie "Dallas Buyers Club" being distributed without its authority. The plaintiff holds Doe-184.108.40.206 responsible because the defendant allegedly used BitTorrent to illegally distribute copies of plaintiff's work.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks permanent injunction enjoining the defendant from infringing plaintiff's works, order to destroy all unauthorized copies of plaintiff's motion picture, statutory damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by James S. Davis in Chula Vista.
