Fox Rothschild Partner Faces Sanctions Hearing Over Porn Copyright Cases

Story :

Lincoln Bandlow is scheduled on Wednesday to argue in a Sacramento federal court that he should not pay sanctions for missing deadlines in roughly 25 cases in which he represents pornography producer Strike 3 Holdings Inc.

Los Angeles-based Bandlow has represented Strike 3 Holdings in roughly 2,500 copyright infringement lawsuits the company has filed since late 2017. The lawsuits accuse unnamed internet users of stealing Strike 3’s videos through the online platform BitTorrent. The vast majority of cases settle.

In large part thanks to Strike 3 Holdings, more copyright lawsuits were filed last year than any year since 2009, according to Lex Machina. Strike 3 filed 2,185 of the 6,516 copyright lawsuits filed nationally last year, Lex Machina data show. The second most copyright complaints were filed in 2015, when 5,219 were brought.

The litigation campaign has come under judicial scrutiny before. A Washington, D.C.-based federal judge in November tossed a Strike 3 lawsuit and said Fox Rothschild was overseeing a “high-tech shakedown” that “treats this court not as a citadel of justice, but as an ATM.” Fox Rothschild has filed an appeal in that case.
