I recently received a letter from a law firm representing an entertainment media company, accusing me or someone using my internet address of illegally downloading and distributing an old movie (Taboo). They are asking for money as settlement or they will take me to court.They did file and affidavit with my ISP to get my address and phone number.

IP Address Opinion

There have been hundreds of thousands of cases where companies bring lawsuits vs people that download or stream movies without paying for them. Recently judges have said that ruling that IP address-only evidence fails to meet the pleading standards required to pursue for copyright infringement. Mainly because IP addresses can be shared by multiple people or sometimes many people so bringing a lawsuit would be difficult since the party who actually downloaded the movie would be unknown.

Mainly there is nothing linking the IP address to the identity of the actual person downloading the copyrighted material and nothing proving that the person actually lives in there.
