Headhunter LLC v. Does 1-9

In a copyright infringement suit arising from BitTorrent downloading of the plaintiff’s movie, the nine defendants must also be severed because, despite being in a common BitTorrent “swarm,” the defendants’ conduct wasn’t part of the same transaction or occurrence. One defendant may also file anonymously, since doing so won’t be unfair to the plaintiff.

Headhunter LLC v. Does 1-9, No. 5:17cv69, Sept. 21, 2018. WDVA at Harrisonburg (Dillon).
