Copyright Defense Lawyers

From time to time I get requests from copyright infringement defense lawyers who ask if I would add a link to their site.  If you are an attorney wishing to add your name/firm to the list, please contact me.  Note: I reserve the right to add or remove these listings as I see fit.

I’m not making any recommendation to use these lawyers, firms, or to hire an attorney at all.  That should be your decision, as it is highly personal and a serious matter.  Understand that lawyers are not generally cheap, but that it may also be in your best interest.  As many of the copyright defense attorneys now have more experience with these case, the fees for some have started to drop.  The Trolls and copyright owners have set their settlement fee schedule at a level they believe is under the cost you will pay a defense attorney – (screenshot).  One place to start for names of lawyers and firm for such matters is the EFF Subpoena Defense Resource page.

    any attorneys in MD who defend these?

  2. WhyUTroll says:

    Additional list of lawyers who handle subpoena defense is available at
    https://www.eff.org/issues/file-sharing/subpoena-defense

  3. Joe Swanson says:

    Jonathon Phillips is great. I highly recommend him.

  4. DTD:

    Our firm would very much appreciate being added to your list of defense lawyers for Pennsylvania. As the Eastern District of Pennsylvania remains in the top-five districts for these copyright lawsuits, our firm is seeing more and more clients come in after receiving subpoenas. We would like to add our voices to the chorus of opposition against these practices.

    Thank you very much.

    DTD,
    would you kindly add my name to your list of defense lawyers. Although I am listed on the EFF website, I suspect that many informed researchers will find this fantastic resource. Delaware has seen four mass filings and I was involved in three. Following initial motion practice, those cases have been dismissed. Thank you for your kind consideration.

    Just wanted to thank you for having Antonelli Law mentioned on your web site! They are the best Law firm for Copyright Infringement, Litigation, Education, Intellectual Property in Illinois!
    100 N La Salle Street Suite 2400, Chicago, IL 60602
    I have found that Attorney Jeff J. Antonelli’s firm and his colleagues such as Amelia Niemi’s integrity, professionalism and expertise to be exceptional.They kept me informed with every step and I felt from the start I was in very good hands. My case was dealt with promptly, accurately and was closed, to my 100% satisfaction! Would recommend without reservation.
    Thank You and God Bless

  7. thisweekmalibu says:

    For the Colorado Lawyers, what do you all suggest? I just received my letter like 2 days ago for a request to release my info from Comcast. Is it even worth having a lawyer or should I just bury my head in the sand approach? ANy suggestion or tips would greatly be appreciated. Also this Malibu Media guys are getting pretty aggresive with each new filing it seems? I would be interested in knowing the percentage of drop/sucess/settlement ratio if anyone has a ballpack figure for Malibu Media.

    Thanks in Advance

  8. abelincoln62 says:

    Konrad Sherinian is a first rate lawyer for defense if you are being mugged by one of these so called film copyright law firms. He is a gentleman and will keep the vermin at bay.

  9. abelincoln62 says:

    Konrad Sherinian is a gentleman and a first rate lawyer who has dealt with these vermin on hundreds of cases. If you want peace of mind and a painless experience (aside from the legal fees) getting your self out of the clutches of these amoral scum I highly recommend him.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    Will you please add me to your list of attorneys who handle these cases? I defended one person against Malibu Media, and the case settled. If my client had been willing to take it further, I believe we could have been quite successful.
