p2p Filesharing Lawsuits Suck!!!! . . . . . p2plawsuitssuck.com
Have you been contacted and accused of copyright violation due to use of a peer to peer file sharing network? Received a letter that start like this:
' We have asked your Internet Service Provider to forward this letter to you in advance of our filing a lawsuit against you in federal court for copyright infringement '
Been notified by your ISP that the recording industry wants money from you because of alleged p2p filesharing? Received an email or letter from someone on behalf of the recording companies? Been sued by recording companies for copyright infringement?
Been asked to go to a website or call a number where you can work out a "reasonable" settlement with the recording companies?
Talk to a lawyer before you respond! If you communicate with the recording companies representatives too soon, you may reveal your identity when all they have so far is an IP number and perhaps an account name. Don't make it easy for them. They are attempting to save costs and increase their funds (to bring even more of these lawsuits) by getting a quick and easy settlement from you.
