Re: What I would do if Voltage has my IP Address

Well bless you and the other 1%.

This is going to be very interesting to watch as it unfolds.

It's not like people like me are naturally altruistic, though many are, we are just obstinate and inclined to fight.

In ancient times we wouldn't survive long, probably not into adulthood, or would go on to lead great campaigns.

We are not really motivated by the opponent but the principle or righteous cause or our own sense of hubris.

However we are often wrong and subject to great prejudice because of it.

But one thing usually results. Those who encounter us tread cautiously upon subsequent encounters.

I haven't and won't be named, as I don't download movies. They're not worth my time as they're all crap anyways. I watch a few TV shows, and thats about it for my TV/movie watching.

I don't download either but I have got a notices from Cogeco. I also have an unsecured wireless router (not always on) that I don't know how to secure ready to introduce into evidence with expert testimony.

The problem however, is that once you get named, you have to get yourself severed from the main suit (which may or may not happen) as you're 1 of 2000 defendants, and then get it knocked down to small claims.

The best bet right now, is CIPPIC.

You won't get severed from the action as a defendant as the plaintiff has plead and relied on the same facts and law to initiate the action. You will only move to change the venue to one in which the playing field is level with some due diligence. That is assuming you people don't mind litigating in Federal Court and being liable for substantial costs if you don't prevail.

What those in the US are doing, is arguing its too difficult to maintain proper case management in suing 2000 people at once in a single suit, due to their various defenses, so its easier on the court to sever (and the plaintiff can refile separately against Does). And the judges agree.

They don't want to see 2000 different motions on the docket for the same case.

It would be appropriate to ask the court to direct the plaintiffs to file in Small Claims at that juncture in the proceedings.
