Lionsgate sues anonymous online leakers of 'The Expendables 3'

John Doe picked the wrong cast to mess with.

Lionsgate has filed a lawsuit against 10 anonymous individuals who shared an advance copy of the upcoming action sequel The Expendables 3, starring Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, and just about every other muscular action star. But this isn’t your everyday online bootleg. On July 24 Lionsgate learned that a digital file containing a high-quality reproduction of the film had been stolen and uploaded to the internet; it has since been downloaded more than a million times. The lawsuit against “John Does 1-10″ lists URLs like limetorrents.com and billionuploads.com as the only way to identify the suspects. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news.

The lawsuit claims Lionsgate sent demand letters to the operators of all the torrent sites with no response. The lawsuit further explains, “By downloading one of these ‘torrent’ files a*sociated with the Stolen Film from limetorrents.com, users join a ‘swarm’ where they download parts of the Stolen Film from many different users and also upload to other users parts of the Stolen Film they have already received, until eventually they have reproduced the entire Stolen Film on their own hard drives and in most cases have also uploaded all or a substantial part of the Stolen Film to others.”

Lionsgate’s demands are pretty tough. Not only do they seek a temporary restraining order and injunctions that would prevent the operators from further profiting off the advance copies of Expendables 3, they also request that the anonymous defendants be prohibited from operating any of the websites and orders them to “take all steps necessary to recall and recover all copies of the Stolen Film or any portion thereof that they have distributed.”

The original Expendables film was also the victim of torrent users—production company Nu Image went after more than 23,000 alleged online pirates back in 2011. The Expendables 3 is still scheduled to be released (officially) August 15.

the movie was off to a rough start before the leak if you look at what movies premier the week before and the week after. the leak was just the nail in the coffin.

I don't think they know how the internet works. Do they really want everyone who downloaded it to send it back to them??

Or do they really think everyone has Chinese style bootleg DVD's?

Folks downloading it from the torrent sites need to watch what trackers are on the file, film companies are real good for helping you steal their sh*t so they can send you cease & desist letter and build a case against you.

Probably means to have them subpoena ISPs - which In turn will send a subpoena notice to the IPs mailing address telling them of the subpoena and using a scare tactic to get them to pay some amount of money.

Comcast, probably others too(I dont think they actually subed people, just a notice that they got subed because of your IP Address and would give out your personal information in court if asked) subpoenaed people A couple years ago over movies - followed the case online and people payed up to 3 grand to 'settle' If you did nothing - nothing happened. My buddy who's a lawyer said If you get the subpoena and they don't call you to court within a year Its gone.... they din't call anyone to court though cause an IP address isn't enough evidence that YOU did it, would just waste more money in court. Just recouped some money using the scare tactic.

People can mask IP addresses, sh*t I COULD use my neighbors If i wanted, but at the end of the day as long as your computer isnt somehow confiscated you just play dumb if it goes that far.
