PHILADELPHIA - A film production company is suing 10 unnamed individuals in Pennsylvania, citing alleged copyright infringement for digitally sharing a recent movie release.
ME2 Productions Inc. filed a complaint April 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, all Comcast subscribers identified by their IP addresses, alleging they made unauthorized copies of the plaintiff's 2017 motion picture, Mechanic: Resurrection.
According to the complaint, the company alleges it sustained damages to its business from having its motion picture distributed without its permission. It holds the 10 individuals responsible because they allegedly used BitTorrent software to distribute unauthorized copies of the plaintiff's motion picture.
ME2 requests a trial by jury, seeks to enjoin the defendant and requests the defendant deliver for destruction all unauthorized copies of the plaintiff's motion picture, as well as statutory damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants.
The company is represented by Charles Thomas and Lee M. Herman of Creative Rights Law Group PLLC in Media.
