Automata Productions Inc

Automata Productions Inc.

Automata Productions, Inc. is a company filing federal copyright infringement lawsuits involving the film titled “Automata.” The film was directed by Gabe Ibanez and features Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen and Dylan McDermott. The film was released in October 2014.

To date, Automata Productions, Inc. has only filed lawsuits in Illinois and Oregon. Multiple Doe cases were filed in Illinois. Single Doe lawsuits have been filed in Oregon. The company is represented by Attorney Carl Crowell in Oregon and Attorney Michael Hierl in Illinois.

Like other BitTorrent peer-to-peer file-sharing cases, Automata Productions, Inc. accuses defendants of copyright infringement by using software and the internet to obtain the film "Automata" without paying the appropriate license fee. 

For immediate advice and a free initial consultation call Antonelli Law at 312-201-8310 or fill out our simple contact page or email us to call you back at a time that is convenient for you. We can help you if you have received an ISP letter informing you a subpoena for your identity was received, or if you are served with a summons or waiver of service.

We understand the shock you may be feeling from receiving a notice of this action, and have the experience to help you deal with this in the best way possible for you. Attorney referrals accepted.

Antonelli Law is Very Experienced Defending BT Claims


Antonelli Law has represented over 1500 clients dealing with copyright trolls and satellite piracy trolls since 2011. We have gained a great deal of insight into what works and what is a waste of your time and money. We have no desire to have you spin your wheels with legal work that does not advance your defense and only racks up lawyer fees. However, we are experienced litigators and are prepared to defend clients vigorously. Either way, we will never put our interests ahead of your own.

Hiring Antonelli Law Is No More Expensive than Hiring a Local Attorney in Your State 

Antonelli Law's numerous federal court admissions, local counsel affiliations, and the nature of federal lawsuits allow us to effectively and cost-consciously represent you in your copyright infringement defense, no matter which state you live in - and no more expensively than a local attorney. 

We are able to represent you in your federal case without being more expensive or more difficult to hire than hiring a local attorney because federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. Also, we do not charge for airline flights or flying travel charges. Clients pay only for the normal travel time to the courthouse any local attorney would charge. 

Finally, we have affiliated local counsel in numerous  states who have earned our trust and can appear in court on an expedited basis when necessary. We will of course be in court personally when necessary such as non-routine hearings or a trial. Federal practice is largely electronic nowadays, meaning we can file papers in court in any federal court nationwide just as easily as if it was next door. But our local counsel could run to the courthouse today if it became necessary.
