According to a report from World Intellectual Property Review, the WWE has filed a a copyright infringement lawsuit against a group of BitTorrent users for the 2016 movie release of WWE Studios’ “Eliminators” which featured now-former WWE Superstar Wade Barrett.

The lawsuit was filed on Thursday, April 6th in Connecticut which claims that the defendants vicariously infringed on WWE’s copyright, and used BitTorrent to “unlawfully acquire, reproduce, and distribute” the movie.” The defendant’s IP addresses were identified with forensic software, and WWE are not suing BitTorrent themselves for the infringement.

The WWE is looking to get actual damages, statutory damages of $150,000 per infringement, costs and a jury trial.

    So that would mean those that have accounts and upload the movie, etc with links to download. Those people would be in violation of illegal. BUT those people that just downloads it from the link is ok to do?

    Is that what you are saying?

    Unless WWE knows for certain the people they are suing have substantial amounts of money, there is no way they will take it to court because ti would cost THEM more money to file the suit than they would ever get back. That’s why piracy is rampant because people know companies don’t care to do anything about it unless it is costing them a lot of money.

  • Killswitch

    Bittorrent is not illegal, and torrents themselves aren’t inherently illegal. What IS illegal is sharing copyrighted content to other users. The fault lies entirely on those users.

  • Arnold Jackson

    So they are suing the people who downloaded it? Wow that could be opening huge can of worms if they actually did that and win.
