With one of the more ironic titles to be injected into a standard Bittorrent copyright lawsuit, the owner of rights to the 2013 film “The Power of the Few” is wielding the powerful threat of massive statutory damages against, well, more than a few Does.
The Power of the Few, LLC has filed several lawsuits in U.S. District Courts in Colorado and Louisiana over its work, which has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as “[t]he latest Pulp Fiction wannabe.” It features Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, and others in an ensemble cast of characters facing various challenges on the streets of New Orleans (where, it turns out, at least one of the lawsuits have been filed).
The Louisiana suit was filed by New Orleans attorney Alexa R. Stabler of AdamsIP, LLC, while the Colorado suits were lodged by Scott T. Kannady of Denver. Case listings with links to the complaints are below.
