Arte de Oaxaca  - Dismissed March 13, 2013 

The Arte de Oaxaca case is similar to the Guava, LLC cases in that it basically alleges a conspiracy of individuals hacking computer systems in order to access adult movies on a paid website(s). The following is not intended to be legal advice. Seek competent legal counsel for your specific situation.

At this point in time, the Arte de Oaxaca case appears to allege a conspiracy of individuals hacking computer systems in order to access adult movies on a paid website(s) - which are not named. Alternatively, the complaint appears to allege a conspiracy of individuals using stolen login credentials (username and passwords) to achieve the same aim, to access adult movies on a paid website without paying the fee.

We have no reliable facts at this point in time, as there has been little to no court-ordered discovery to obtain documents, depositions, etc. Speculation exists that IP addresses receiving notices of subpoenas in the Arte de Oaxaca case may have merely been used in file-sharing using BitTorrent software.

If this is the case, it does not mean that Arte de Oaxaca case has a legal case against the persons for merely using BitTorrent to file-share movies. It remains to be seen if Arte de Oaxaca case will better articulate their claims (just as with the Arte de Oaxaca and LW Systems LLC cases). As with other peer-to-peer file-sharing cases, we will continue to follow the Arte de Oaxaca case intensely to advise our clients.
