Have you been named as a "John Doe" in a copyright infringement suit

By Ray Beckerman

Many people find themselves being sued as "John Does" in copyright infringement suits these days.

What it means is that a company seeking to sue for copyright infringement believes that an infringing download occurred through a particular internet access account on a certain date and time, but doesn't know who did it, and is trying to find out.

Our office represents defendants in these types of cases.

Sometimes we make a motion to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim, sometimes we move to sever the multiple John Doe defendants and dismiss as to the severed cases, sometimes we negotiate a settlement.

You can learn more about these types of cases on our blog, "Recording Industry vs The People", http://recordingindustryvspeople.blogspot.com
