Several new BitTorrent copyright cases were lodged in the U.S. District for the District of Colorado by ME2 Productions, Inc., following a great number of similar “troll-style” lawsuits filed across the country.

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

ME2 Productions is an affiliates of Nu Image / Millennium Films, which hold interests in films that have been litigated in many prior and pending enforcement actions, including Septembers in Shiraz, Criminal, London Has Fallen, Automata, The Humbling, The Expendables, Charlie Countryman and Bad Lieutenant.

The new suits filed in Colorado 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.

Like many another similar lawsuits filed in the same District Court, the ME2 cases were filed by David J. Stephenson, Jr. of The Rocky Mountain Thunder Law Firm.  A case listing with links to the complaints is below.
