Hurt Locker File-sharing Subpoenas Starts

suraj.sun (1348507) writes "Hurt Locker producers are finally moving to acquire the names of people they accuse of sharing this year's "Best Picture" winner on peer-to-peer sites. Qwest Communications last week notified a customer in Denver that the Internet service provider has received a subpoena from lawyers representing Voltage Pictures, the production company that made "The Hurt Locker."

"It is our company policy to notify our customer when we have received a subpoena requesting their records in civil matter," Qwest informed the customer, who contacted CNET on Thursday and asked to remain anonymous. "As required by law, to the extent we have these records we will furnish the records on or before Sept. 30, 2010."

Voltage Pictures is just one of at least a dozen indie studios that are participating in an antipiracy campaign spearheaded by the Washington, D.C. law firm of Dunlap, Grubb & Weaver. DGW began filing copyright suits earlier this year. In "The Hurt Locker" case, the law firm filed suit against 5,000 "John Does" in May ( http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/05/28/2147239/The-Hurt-Locker-Producers-Sue-First-5000-File-Sharers ).
