Strike 3 subpoena and how to deal with them

This video talks about what a "SUBPOENA" is and when it might be possible to file a "MOTION TO QUASH." In general, a subpoena is a demand from a Court to your ISP (in torrent defense cases). The subpoena was allowed to be sent to the ISP from the Plaintiff (ex. Malibu Media or Strike 3 Holdings, LLC) following a motion filed in Court by the Plaintiff which allowed them to send "early discovery" to the ISP (such a Charter Communications, Cox. Comcast, Verizon, etc.). The subpoena will give you a "deadline" to file either a motion to quash or to seek a protective order and to inform the ISP that you will be filing court papers to challenge the federal court lawsuit. This can be a very complicated legal procedure and to discuss the best route to responding to an ISP supena, many people find that hiring a copyright attorney to advise them of the options, and to ultimately assist them in settlement negotiations and respond to the lawsuit, is usually a good way to go.

2019 LEGAL UPDATES: One of the leaders of the firm Fox Rothschild (a firm with over 700 attorneys nationwide) now has a new attorney breaking out of BIGLAW (to our knowledge starting a law firm with his wife) but still fighting hard to stick it to many people (including a very large number of racial minorities - he teaches at U.S.C. apparently) with a financially crippling settlement, because, as he has informed us, porn downloaders of his clients films is like a murderer seeking sympathy for stealing. This guy is really over the top and even the courts have sanctioned them. If you are dealing with BandlowLaw call us for a consultation. These people are RUTHLESS trust me. I just saw a demand for $50.0000 dollars. This is INSANE and way out of control. Perhaps as a U.S.C. professor he can do what he wants, but people are being DEVASTATED by him and his new firm BANDLOW LAW.
