US Online Piracy Lawsuits Break Record Numbers

Story :

Copyright cases in the United States are dominated by two companies which are generally unknown to the public at large. This year alone, Malibu Media and Strike 3 Holdings have filed more than 1,700 lawsuits, breaking a new file-sharing lawsuit record in the most recent quarter.

While the major entertainment conglomerates are mainly focusing on streaming piracy, the US courts are still overloaded with BitTorrent related lawsuits.

In Europe, there is a fair amount of pushback against these so-called “copyright trolling” efforts, even from Internet providers.

In the United States, however, they barely make the news anymore yet the number of lawsuits is steeply on the rise.
