Notorious BitTorrent plaintiff LHF Productions, Inc. has expanded its nationwide litigation campaign to Hawaii, with recent copyright lawsuits against scores of “Doe” defendants in the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawai’i.
LHF Productions, Inc. holds copyrights to the action flick London Has Fallen, featuring Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart in an assassination plot caper. The Hawai’i actions follows many other LHF suits recently filed in other jurisdictions across the U.S.. As reported before, LHF is an affiliate of Nu Image / Millennium Films, which hold interests in films that have been the subject of prior enforcement actions, including Automata, The Humbling, The Expendables, Charlie Countryman and Bad Lieutenant.
The new lawsuits each allege direct and indirect copyright infringement by many unknown “Doe” parties through their use of BitTorrent file-sharing software. The cases seek 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 LHF complaints were signed by Honolulu attorney Gregory A. Ferren. A case listing, with links to the complaints, are below.
