SAN DIEGO — A film producer is suing DOE-18.104.22.168, an individual, citing alleged copyright infringement.
September Productions filed a complaint on Oct. 17, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against DOE-22.214.171.124 alleging that the individual violated laws through unauthorized distribution of an intellectual property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on Jan.1, September Productions was the sole proprietor of all rights, title and interest in the film Septembers of Shiraz, including the exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute as well as the right to bring suit for past infringement. Subsequently, the plaintiff discovered that the defendant, who is currently known only by its Internet Protocol Address, was observed through direct TCP/IP connection as infringing the motion picture and utilizing BitTorrent software to distribute plaintiff’s motion picture, thereby causing damages to the plaintiff's goodwill. The plaintiff holds DOE-126.96.36.199 responsible because the defendant allegedly gained profit at the expense of plaintiff and distributed an intellectual property without prior consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, permanent injunction, damages, costs, attorney's fees and further relief as the court deems proper. They are represented by James S. Davis of James S. Davis Attorney At Law in Chula Vista, California.
