Prenda Law firm accused of seeding films

Oops!

Quote:
The report hinted that the law firm was seeding the very files they claimed to protect, and found that many of the torrents detailed in Prenda lawsuits originate from a user on The Pirate Bay called ‘Sharkmp4′.

So PirateBay dug around their logs and got the IPs that Sharkmp4 used to upload torrents of copyrighted films to their website.

Quote:
After a few weeks Comcast returned the subscriber details that matched the IP-address at the time the files were uploaded. As can be seen from their response detailed below, this IP is indeed the Comcast account of Steele Hansmeier PLLC, which is directly connected to Prenda Law.

Can they sue themselves?

Prenda going down...

Quote:
The copyright-lawsuit factory known as Prenda Law is in the midst of a long shutdown, which is certainly no fun for the lawyers that run the organization. Today their headaches multiplied, as a second federal judge has followed the example of US District Judge Otis Wright, referring the Prenda firm to the US Attorney's office in Minnesota.

Prenda has sued thousands of Internet users for illegally downloading pornography, according to lawsuits filed through shell companies like AF Holdings and Ingenuity 13. Those companies were using copyright assignments now alleged to be bogus.

Quote:
A federal judge in Minnesota has ordered one of the men behind the notorious Prenda Law group to liquidate his assets. Paul Hansmeier must now sell his condominium, among other assets, in order to pay back $2.5 million of debts more quickly rather than having the case drag out for years.

Bump!

A US lawyer could be jailed for up to 10 years for helping to upload porn films to file-sharing sites and then sue people who downloaded them.

Paul Hansmeier has pleaded guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering for his part in the Prenda Law piracy scheme.

Prenda is believed to have made about $3m (£2.3m) from the scheme.

His guilty plea is part of an agreement that will ensure he does not receive a sentence longer than 150 months.
