Indiana Copyright Litigation Update – Countryman Nevada v. Does 1-16

They’re back! Just when you thought the BitTorrent download cases had stopped in Indiana, Nicoletti is back with a new lawsuit involving “Charlie Countryman,” a film starring Shia LaBeouf, Rupert Grint and Evan Rachel Wood. The film was released November 15, 2013 in the United States to largely negative reviews. Having failed at the box office, the producers have apparently turned to lawyers to recoup some of their costs from the 16 Hoosiers unlucky enough to have (allegedly) downloaded the film.

Indiana Copyright Litigation Update – William James v. Tyler Perry

The case involves Tyler Perry’s new movie, Temptation. Plaintiff, an Indiana resident, alleges to have written a very similar screenplay that he gave to “an associate of Oprah Winfrey” a couple years ago to give to Perry. Plaintiff received no further contact regarding the script and learned of the similarities when Perry’s movie was promoted in early 2013. Plaintiff now seeks remuneration via a copyright infringement lawsuit.

Temptation involves “[a]n explosive romance about the seductive dangers of the forbidden, this film tells the provocative and sensual story of Judith, an ambitious married woman whose obsessive passion for a handsome billionaire leads to betrayal, danger and a choice that will forever alter the course of her life.”
