Attorneys for Plaintiff, Venice, P.I. had filed suit in the Northern District of Indiana alleging that many anonymous Defendants, as listed below, infringed the Plaintiff’s copyright: (list of IP addresses in article)

The John Does listed are alleged to have illegally distributed copies of the movie “Once Upon a Time in Venice,” to which Plaintiff allegedly holds the copyright. Plaintiff claims that the Defendants used the software BitTorrent to distribute copies of the movie.

John Doe 1 filed Motions to Quash or Vacate, Issue a Protective Order, and/or Sever and Dismiss, and the Court ruled on the Motion to Sever. Plaintiff claimed that joining all 18 claims together would promote judicial economy, but the Court disagreed and found no evidence that it would. Further, the Court exercised its broad discretion to sever claims to avoid prejudice and unfairness to any defendants.

The Court stated that the Plaintiff must move forward and sue each Defendant separately.





the court's opinion and order are linked at the end of the article.
