* EFF IS DEFENDING THE RIGHTS OF THOUSANDS OF INTERNET
USERS FROM PREDATORY MOVIE-DOWNLOADING LAWSUITS by
asking judges in Washington, D.C., to deny attempts by
the U.S. Copyright Group (USCG) to lump scores of people
as defendants into copyright infringement cases. The USCG
has stacked the deck against the defendants by requiring
all of them to defend these cases in Washington, D.C.,
regardless of where they actually live.
EFF has long been concerned that some attorneys would
attempt to create a business out of mass copyright
lawsuits, shaking settlements out of innocent people who
aren't in a position to raise legitimate defenses. EFF is
asking the court to step in now and force USCG to follow
the rules that apply in all other cases.
