Torrent Illegal Movie Download Defenses – I didn't do it!!
This is a situation that comes up in about 10% or so of our cases. This is what I call the “I didn't do the downloading” defense. Sometimes parents may not know their kids are downloading software, music, videos or other creative copyrighted content through torrent protocal. They may not know their wifi is unsecured or that their neighbors or house guests may be the perpetrators of illegal file sharing of movie productions such as Strike 3 Holdings (Blacked, Vixen, and Tushy) or Malibu Media (X Art) for example. In these cases, we need to closely examine the facts and consider the Top 5 issues and concerns.

- Are you willing to have your deposition taken?
- Are you willing to allow or submit to a Forensic investigation of your computers and laptops?
