Can they do this? If so, can they also demand this amount if Voltage Pictures chooses not to pursue these account holders?

then Voltage pictures would have pulled off the most amazing data-grab in history, and turn around and sell it to a 3rd party advertising company for some serious $$ on the side.

If I read correctly, Voltage could add that cost to their claim against the defendant.i.e, you would pay a portion of the 190k if Voltage sues you and wins.

yes they can. There is a mechanism for this when a company is not in Canada and retrieving the money would be next to impossible. Thus the reason why if you look through the tweets you will see the reference to how Voltage is a foreign company and thus falls under the rules to pay up-front.

This is one of the things that's hung up recent lawsuit-o-matic cases in the US. Plantiffs would love to have one case that covers all the infringement of a movie. However each act of infringement is a distinct act and not in conjunction with the other. A trial with all of them would be a logistical nightmare as each defendant is entitled to their own defense counsel. Plus, a combined trail would be extremely prejudicial for someone who was innocent to be included with those who were not with nothing in common between the cases aside from the name of a movie.
