Hammond and Indianapolis, Indiana – A copyright litigator for Plaintiff ME2 Productions, Inc. of Carson City, Nevada filed three new complaints in Indiana federal courts alleging copyright infringement.
Plaintiff asserts that a total of 25 as-yet-unknown Defendants infringed the copyrighted movie “Mechanic: Resurrection,” which stars Jason Statham, Jessica Alba and Tommy Lee Jones. The movie has been registered with the U.S. Copyright Office under Registration No. PA-1-998-057.
In its complaints, Plaintiff contends that Defendants were traced to Internet Protocol addresses in Indiana using geolocation technology. Two lawsuits were filed in the Northern District of Indiana; one was filed in the Southern District of Indiana.
As in its previous Indiana copyright litigation regarding this movie, Plaintiff states that a “screener copy” of the film was leaked and illegally distributed on the internet via BitTorrent, a file-sharing protocol. Each complaint states a single cause of action: copyright infringement.
Plaintiff claims that the Defendants’ actions constituted willful and intentional infringement. It asks the court for injunctive relief, statutory damages, costs and attorneys’ fees.
