Court Refuses To Allow Copyright Troll To “Ensnare” Innocent Subscribers  January 25, 2013 – 09:02 pm

So-called copyright troll cases in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany in particular, are causing misery for hundreds of thousands of people.

The problems are many. The cash claims from copyright holders against those they claim have unlawfully shared their content online are not only aggressive, excessive and cynical, but worse still they often target the innocent.

Copyright trolls, many of them from the adult industry, know they are targeting the subscribers of Internet connections when they seek to discover who is behind an IP address. They also know that there is a significant chance that the bill payer isn’t the actual infringer.

Sadly, they really don’t care, so with this in mind it’s always nice when a court does.

In the case of Third Degree Films v Does 1-110, the adult studio went to the District Court in New Jersey seeking discovery of the identities of 110 alleged BitTorrent pirates. As usual the company wanted the judge to order the Does’ ISPs to hand over their personal details including names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail and MAC addresses. What would follow is the usual pay-up-or-else threats.

The first problem highlighted by the judge was on the issue of joinder. Citing an “almost identical” earlier case presided over by Judge Faith S. Hochberg, Judge Mark Falk said he agreed entirely with the decision to disallow joining all alleged infringers in one lawsuit. On this basis he kicked out 109 of the 110 Does in the Third Degree complaint.

The faster the adjustments are made, the more efficient and equitable the outcome. On the other hand, the more rapid the adjustments, the less the 'material incentive' to innovate and the greater the incentive to 'ride for free' on the innovations of others. But a partici
