Alleged File-Sharer Got $17,000 from Copyright Troll

Alleged File-Sharer Got $17,000 from Copyright Troll

Movie producers of The Cobbler made a mistake when decided to sue alleged torrent pirates in the hope to regain the lost profits. Instead, they lost even more money: the court has just ruled that a wrongfully accused file-sharer is entitled to $17,000 in compensation due to the moviemakers' overaggressive tactics.

Copyright trolling is a popular practice in the movie industry these days, where the copyright holders extract a settlement from the alleged pirates by threatening them with legal action. However, today more and more defendants choose to fight back with success.

The makers of the Adam Sandler movie The Cobbler tried to sue an alleged movie pirate, but the judge dismissed their complaint as it was clear that the defendant, who operates an adult foster care home, wasn’t the infringer. Besides, the judge ruled that the copyright holders should pay the legal fees of the falsely accused individual: $17,222 in attorney fees and $255 in other expenses.

Apparently, the option to shift the legal fees to the copyright trolls should send a strong message to other law firms that taking people to court without a strong case will have its consequences. Compensating this particular file-sharer will encourage other alleged infringers with valid defenses to litigate them even if it is an expensive process. Money is always a factor that the defendants fear to lose.

Besides, awarding fees to the “pirate” should deter copyright trolls from continuing their overaggressive tactics of harassing the alleged infringers without sufficient evidence in the future.

Admiral_Smith avatarSo trolls are lucky little creatures for winning money with..... hehehehe!
All these people are from L.A. I guess and that means they may use the same law suit tactic as they do by warning seedboxes which means something in the mix is snitching on the downloader. It SNITCHES! So there. I guess it is a tracker or maybe someone listening on the http line for requesting text of torrent files. (yeah listening to a compromised tracker...) I assume it is all secure and there are holes... not curs in the pellet that yawn yer gullet!

amebix avatarThis is all wrong. The Defendant had to pay 750$ but the judge denied 17,000$ that would have paid for the trolls legal expenses.

The "downloader" did not in fact get any money.


"While the Defendant was found responsible for the minimum $750 in statutory damages, the Court denied Plaintiff’s motion for attorney’s fees, which would have subjected the Defendant to roughly $17,000 in additional damages."
