Apparently undaunted by the previous mass dismissals, Voltage Pictures has moved forward with their BitTorrent litigation strategy by filing a copyright infringement action against a single IP address. I’m reluctant to forecast Voltage Pictures’ next move, but I suspect this is a test case that, if financially successful, will result in hundreds of individual filings.
[Update: A commenter has informed that the Defendant in this case was one of the first to respond with a Motion to Quash in one of the original Voltage Pictures cases, 3:13-cv-00295-AC. The Defendant, represented by Swider Medeiros Haver LLP, was released from that case as a part of the mass dismissals undertaken last week by Judge Aiken.]
