SAN DIEGO — A movie producer has filed suit against an online individual for alleged copyright infringement after it was discovered the online individual shared the producer's copyrighted movie.
LHF Productions Inc. filed a complaint Oct. 17 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Doe-126.96.36.199 alleging that the individual violated laws by the unauthorized distribution of an intellectual property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between Sept. 7 to Sept. 9, LHF Productions Inc. has observed through direct TCP/IP connection the infringing activity of its motion picture, London Has Fallen, by the defendant who is currently known only by his internet protocol address, through peer-to-peer file sharing, thereby causing the plaintiff to suffer monetary damages. The plaintiff holds Doe-188.8.131.52 responsible because the defendant allegedly obtained profit at the expense of the plaintiff and copied and distributed the subject motion picture without prior consent from its rightful owner.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, permanent injunction, statutory damages, costs, attorney's fees and further relief as the court deems proper. It is represented by James S. Davis of James S. Davis Attorney At Law in Chula Vista.
