J&J Sports is a company that  handles the distribution of boxing PPV matches across the country.  In 2011, they have filed over 700 lawsuits against businesses across the country alleging copyright infringement.  The allegations is that the business at issue did not pay the required fee to show the fight.  While the average price of a boxing PPV fight may be $50 for someone at home, bars and other public places may have to pay thousands of dollars.  To avoid this, some businesses just order it as if they are at home and then display the fight.  They get caught because investigators will go to the business and take pictures that prove that the fight is being shown.  They also take numerous head counts to indicate how many people are there.  This investigator then writes a report and forwards it to a lawyer who will file suit on behalf of J&J Sports.

As a result, you may have received a lawsuit filed by a lawyer on behalf of J&J Sports.  This may be followed up with a phone call or letter demanding thousands of dollars to settle the case or else face fines even higher than that.  Before you do or say anything, you need to speak to an attorney.  Our team of tough, smart lawyers have helped  clients avoid serious penalties for copyright infringement.  Please contact our office right away to discuss your legal rights.

Joe Hand Promotions is a company that handles the majority of the UFC PPV distribution.  For the last few years, they have filed hundreds of lawsuits against businesses across the country, usually bars and restaurants.  In 2011 alone, they filed 515 lawsuits across the country.   The allegation is that the defendant has shown a boxing fight without the required permission to do so.  Although the average price of a UFC fight may be $50 for someone at home, bars and other public places may have to pay thousands.  To avoid this, some businesses just order it as if they are at home and then display the fight sometimes even charging a cover charge.

They get caught because investigators go into the businesses to take a head count and pictures.  They write a report that is then forwarded to a law firm so that a lawsuit can be prepared. There is usually no warning that such a suit may be filed.  Your first notice of a lawsuit from Joe Hand Promotions may be service of the lawsuit itself.  This gives you little time to resolve this matter.  Before you agree to any settlement offer, call us first!  Too many businesses have been scared into agreeing to large settlement because they did not speak to a copyright infringement lawyer.

This firm has successfully helped clients avoid serious penalties for copyright infringement including pirating UFC fights.  If you have been contacted by a lawyer representing Joe Hand Promotions Sports or any other entity alleging that you have pirated a PPV UFC match, please contact our office right away to discuss your legal rights.  Our team of tough, smart lawyers can help defend you.

Hackensack attorney, Jay R. McDaniel files copyright infringement lawsuits on behalf of Century Media in New Jersey

Apparently, New Jersey is the new hotbed of copyright infringement lawsuits.  Jay McDaniel has filed a number of lawsuits against tens of thousands of people for a number of clients. Two of the suits aim to halt the illicit distribution of “Dark Adrenaline,” the most recent album by the Italian band Lacuna Coil. The suits collectively target 3,136 John Doe defendants. Four similar civil complaints accuse another 4,327 unnamed file swappers of illegally distributing “Dystopia,” the 2011 album by Iced Earth, a Florida-based metal band on the Century Media label.

McDaniel also represents a German film company, Amselfilm Productions GmbH & CO. KG of Berlin, which holds the rights to the 2011 Russian movie “Bablo,” or “The Dough.  Three suits, filed in late June at the same time as the six Century Media cases, contend 4,654 people shared pirated copies of the film.  McDaniel has also represented German client, Baseprotect UG Ltd in a previous lawsuit.

The most interesting thing about the most recent lawsuits filed by Century Media and Amselfilm is that the complaints name not only the John Doe parties as defendants, but also a specific swarm that was allegedly detected on various dates sharing a specific copy of a pirated work.

Since I am involved in this case, I’m not going to provide any commentary here except to say that if you are facing any copyright infringement lawsuits in New Jersey or any other state, call me anytime to discuss.
