Several new copyright suits were lodged in three U.S. District Courts across North Carolina by LHF Productions, Inc. and ME2 Productions, Inc., further confirming the status of their common affiliate, Nu Image / Millennium Films, as one of the most prolific “troll-style” copyright enforcers in the nation.

LHF holds copyrights to the action flick London Has Fallen, featuring Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart in an assassination plot caper. This follows many other LHF suits recently filed in other jurisdictions.

As Troll Defense reported before, ME2 Proudctions Inc. has rights in the 2016 action thriller Mechanic: Resurrection, which stars Jessica Alba and Jason Stratham.  The films’s predecessor, The Mechanic, was also the subject of BitTorrent lawsuits.

As reported before, LHF and ME2 are each affiliates of Nu Image / Millennium Films, which hold interests in films that have been the subject of prior enforcement actions, including Septembers in Shiraz, Criminal, Automata, The Humbling, The Expendables, Charlie Countryman and Bad Lieutenant.

The new filed in the Eastern, Middle and Western District Courts, allege copyright infringement by  scores of separate “Doe” parties through their use of BitTorrent file-sharing software.  The plaintiffs are out for statutory damages pursuant to the Copyright Act, attorney’s fees and costs, and an injunction against further infringement.

These complaints were signed by Cary, N.C. attorneys Kathleen M. Lynch and/or R. Matthew Van Sickle.  A case listing with links to the complaints is below.
