Griggs v. Does 1-188

Walter C. Griggs v. Does 1-188

Walter C. Griggs has file a federal copyright infringement lawsuit against 188 John Does in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The lawsuit involves the alleged downloading of a file called “Three Times Dope.” The file contains 34 sound recordings which the plaintiff performed and wrote the music and lyrics.

To date, Walter Griggs has only filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Attorney Raymond F. Keenan is representing him in the lawsuit.

Like other BitTorrent peer-to-peer file-sharing cases, Walter Griggs is accusing defendants of copyright infringement by using software and the internet to obtain the recordings without paying the appropriate license fee.

Antonelli Law is Very Experienced Defending BT Claims

Antonelli Law has represented over 1200 clients dealing with copyright trolls and satellite piracy trolls. 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 a number of 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.
