13 Mar 15 Update

tameroff_TrollsWell the activity of Troll Lipscomb and crew has riled up a notable Doe Defender, Robert Cashman, Cashman Law Firm, TX.  He just published an article on the Manny Film LLC cases that is well worth a read.   TorrentLawyer Article   Of particular note is something I didn’t notice – it appears that Doe Defenders “Daniel F. Tamaroff, David F. Tamaroff of Tamaroff & Tamaroff, have decided to now become BT Copyright Trolls.  Enjoy the title boys; and the smell that comes with it.

9 Mar 15 Update

***  As of today, the number of Manny Film LLC cases has increased to 127 in the following jurisdictions.  FLMD (20); FLSD (38); OHND (6); NJ (41); & PAED (22).  I also expect to see additional Manny Film LLC cases to be filed in ILND, MD, VAED, OHSD, NYSD, MIED, and possibly DC.  I don’t think we will see any CO cases filed, as Jason Kotzker appears to stopped working for Troll Lipscomb.

———————————————————————————————————

Starting on 27 Feb 15, we started to see a new Plaintiff file BitTorrent (BT) copyright infringement cases through the newest member of the Keith Lipscomb crew, A. Jordan Rushie.  The Plaintiff in these cases is Manny Film LLC, 1175 East Lincoln Ave., Anaheim CA 92805. The movie is “Manny,” a feature-length documentary depicting the life of boxing champion Manny Pacquiao. Here is the CA business record for Manny Film LLC.

As of publication, there have been a total of 87 Manny Film LLC cases filed in NJ (41) and in FL (46), by Troll Jordan Rushie (Flynn Wirkus Young) and Keith Lipscomb.  I also expect to see future Manny Film LLC cases to be filed in the jurisdictions Troll Lipscomb and crew file in.  Here is the complaint for one of Troll Rushie’s cases verse a single ISP subscriber – 3:15-cv-01490.   Complaint_EX_AB_01490(NJ)

The case is nothing special in terms of format (template based) and its content. It simply claims that this movie which “cost millions of dollars to produce,” was leaked onto BT (likely by an insider with access to the movie – not the Defendant) and the ISP subscriber (Defendant) downloaded and shared it to other BT users.

Each infringing transaction between Defendant’s IP address and Excipio is recorded in a PCAP. A PCAP is akin to a video recording. Here, the recording is of a transaction between the infringer’s computer and Excipio’s computer. Through each transaction, Defendant distributed a piece of the Infringing File. The PCAP shows Defendant’s IP address, and the piece that was distributed. Excipio verified that the piece that was distributed belongs to the Infringing File by calculating its hash value.

Troll/Plaintiff makes a single claim of direct copyright infringement and asks the court to award statutory damages, attorney fees, and costs.

One thing Troll Rushie forget to add (most like because he rubber stamped his signature) is the second Copyright record associated with this movie – PAu003725703, dated 4 Nov 13.

Also of note is the statement on the copyright registration the Troll is using – Regarding material excluded: credits on copy indicate some preexisting footage and photographs from various source.

How much “preexisting footage” is included in the updated version is unknown. Now we know that the Anti-Piracy Management Company (APMC)/Excipio/ IPP (insert shell Co. name here) only takes a very small snap-shot of data collection from each IP address with its “PCAP.” Now depending on WHAT portion of the data is recorded in the PCAP, it is possible that the data they collected is part of the preexisting footage from the first copyright registration. This isn’t going to help most of the Does, but it might be of value to a Doe who is fighting back.  It would make their “expert” (term used loosely) have to try to explain how they know the PCAP data was part of the updated movie (PAu003744511) and not from the preexisting material which is not part of this case (PAu003725703) – a valid question based on the complaint.

Also of interest is who they are using to justify their early discovery efforts to obtain the ISP subscriber information of the public IP addresses they recorded. Will this be Daniel Macek, Daniel Susac, or some new stooge?  I haven’t seen the Early Discovery request for any of these cases yet – which is odd in my opinion.  The PCAP data was already recorded and used as a basis for the complaint against the specific public IP addresses.  It should be dead-simple for the APMC to have the declaration ready the same time as the complaint.  Maybe they are having trouble trying to make up a fictitious name???  Try “Biggus Dickus” or “Incontinentia Buttocks.”
