Strike 3 Holdings and Malibu Media are prolific filers on internet "file-sharing" (copyright infringement cases), illegal copying and distribution of adult films such as X-art and Tushy. Vixen, Blacked.  In this episode, Attorney Steve® discusses how the trial court originally DENIED strike three request for early discovery basically stating that their complaint could not pass muster.  However, on appeal, the appellate court adopted a "notice pleading" standard and allowed Defendant's name and address to be turned over from the subscribers ISP (ex. Comcast, Cox, etc.).

This, despite the privacy protections of the Cable Privacy Act.  The Court said that a protective order would take care of any privacy concerns.  This is general legal information only and not legal advice or a substitute for legal advice.  For more information about our Torrent Defense services go to our Attorney Steve Homepage.  Also make sure to watch our videos on our popular legal YouTube channel (now over 20,000 subscribers).
