Default Judgment of $38,645 Entered Against BitTorrent Download Defendant

Another Default Judgment has been ordered in an Indiana BitTorrent download case. It is slightly higher than a similar award in May, due to greater attorneys’ fees.

Defendant shall pay to Plaintiff the sum of $36,000.00 in statutory damages and $2,645.00 for attorneys’ fees and costs, as authorized under 17 U.S.C. § 505, making a total of $38,645.00.

Default Judgment of $37,371 Entered Against BitTorrent Download Defendants

One month ago, Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson awarded the first default judgment in an Indiana download case. Judge Magnus-Stinson awarded the maximum allowable copyright damages for a total award of $151,425.

Today, Judge Sarah Evans Barker awarded a smaller default judgment against 3 defendants, in the amount of $37,371.66. Obviously, this is still a hefty award that many argue far outweighs any damage caused to Plaintiff by the unauthorized download of sixteen pornographic videos.

Here’s the pertinent language from the Default Judgment:

[Defendant] shall pay to Plaintiff the sum of $36,000.00 in statutory damages, as authorized under 17 U.S.C. § 504(c)(1), and $1,371.66 (which is one-third of $4,115.00) for attorneys’ fees and costs, as authorized under 17 U.S.C. § 505, making a total of $37,371.66.

For defendants in other Judge Barker download cases, this now sets an upper limit on how much they should spend on a legal defense or settlement.
