Porn distributor Corbin Fisher sues BitTorrent swarms.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/04/mdpC2T.jpg[/newsimage]Adult entertainment company Corbin Fisher has been actively pursuing pirates, though not without some sympathy: pay up pre-trial, say the lawyers, and you'll never even see the inside of a courtroom. A new case finds the company suing two different BitTorrent groups, ostensibly leveling charges against some unnamed individuals who may not have actually pirated the file themselves.

Seriously, could some lawyer help on this one? How is that not tampering with a witness? Pay me now, or I’ll sue you into oblivion. Someone needs to sue these companies into oblivion. And what about my ISP just handing over info without my consent, shouldn’t my data be kept out of these companies hands unless they have a court order? Lastly, how do they actually track who has what?
Do they just take a pic, then chase down my ip address? Suppose I start to download something, then get a guilty conscience and delete before it is finished or before it is watchable? Should these also be legal considerations that companies and courts could face?

Well, I’m no lawyer, but the people who these amnesty offers are being extended to aren’t witnesses. Sometimes, they aren’t even named defendants.

Is Corbin Fisher only actively pursuing John Does? There are also a lot of Jane Does in Ohio :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
