Strike 3 Holdings Subpoena? A Pornographic Film Company Wants YOUR INFO

Your ISP likely sent you a Strike 3 Holdings subpoena because the pornographic film company of the same name wants your personal information. The subpoena acts as a conduit for getting your ISP to fulfill this request.

Are You a John Doe Defendant?

Strike 3 Holdings, LLC often files civil cases against “John Doe” defendants. A John Doe defendant is the name a Plaintiff calls you in a lawsuit when your identity is unknown. They do this since they only know your internet protocol address (IP address) associated with an internet-connected device, like your modem.

John Doe Has 2 Options to Fight Strike 3

A subpoena is their attempt at FORCING the ISP to provide them with your private subscriber information. Federal law requires the ISP to notify you that they will give Strike 3 Holdings your information.

HOWEVER, you can try to prevent this from happening by hiring a Philadelphia Strike 3 Holdings defense lawyer to file:

Option 1. Motion to Quash:

This is a court request to stop the subpoena by alleging that the company didn’t issue it lawfully.

Option 2. Motion for a Protective Order

This is a court request to prevent the disclosure of your name due to “undue burden.”

Your private information could become part of the case if you don’t hire a lawyer to act on your behalf. It is essential to hire a Philadelphia Strike 3 Holdings defense lawyer at Shuttleworth Law PC who knows their litigation process while preventing a John Doe lawsuit against you!

Yes, Strike 3 Holdings Really Could Get Your Info

Strike 3 Holdings probably wants your private subscriber information so that they can name you as a defendant in a federal copyright infringement case. They have investigators and experts that track the uploading and downloading of their copyrighted, pornographic material to the internet.

How Do They Do It?

Here’s how investigators go after you in 5 steps:

Step 1.

Use sophisticated software to track the IP address sharing protected materials

Step 2.

Once they have the suspected IP address of the alleged copyright infringer, they file the John Doe lawsuit

Step 3.

Serve your ISP with a subpoena

Step 4.

Get your information from the ISP

Step 5.

Name you as a defendant in a civil lawsuit

People usually illegally share pornographic material on peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing services like BitTorrent, eMule, Seedr, or Frost Wire. The problem is that such material is usually subject to federal copyright laws. These laws protect the owners’ rights to reproduce, distribute, or display copyrighted material.

Why Hire a Local Strike 3 Holdings Defense Lawyer vs. a National Defense Firm?

Brad V. Shuttleworth, Esq., founder and defense attorney at Shuttleworth Law PC, is admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey. Law firms that advertise nationally are generally not admitted into local practice, meaning they are either:

  1. Looking to settle without putting up a fight
  2. Referring your case out to a local firm like mine

Cut out the middlemen entirely by hiring a Philadelphia Strike 3 Holdings defense attorney on our legal team.

We will not refer your case to another firm. Instead, you get to feel the reassurance and comfort that a close relationship with your lawyer brings.

The Opportunity to Meet Face-to-Face

Generally, it is preferable to meet with your attorney face-to-face. This meeting may be impossible if you hire one who practices 1,000 miles away. Even if you meet at some point, you certainly won’t be meeting up with them at court.

Shuttleworth Law PC can meet with you discreetly in-person or via secure video chat throughout the time we work together. We are based in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.

State-Specific Familiarity

A national lawyer may be less practiced with the specific laws governing cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. While all attorneys are competent, you may prefer to work with someone who routinely addresses these issues to provide a reassuring and efficient experience.

We’re a Part of YOUR Community

We are familiar with local rules and attitudes within the court system.
