It starts with a letter from your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), telling you that a copyright holder has filed a lawsuit in Federal Court accusing you of acquiring or sharing videos, music, or other content on the Internet using Bit Torrent or some other file sharing protocol. The letter goes on to inform you that your ISP has received a subpoena, and will release your information to the copyright plaintiff on a certain date. If not handled properly, this kind of suit can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars of liability for you and your family. In fact, many attorneys that are not used to handling matters in Federal Court make critical errors in handling these cases.
