Torrent sites sued by Lionsgate over leak of ‘The Expendables 3′...
Available information to us at bigtimerz.com indicates that Lionsgate is taking legal action against torrent sites over the leak of their movie "The Expendables 3" which was scheduled for August 15 this year.
Among names mentioned Lionsgate are operators of file-sharing websites like Limetorrents.com, Billionuploads.com, Hulkfile.eu, Played.to, Swantshare.com, and Dotsemper.com as defendants in their lawsuit.
According to the movie giant, several letters sent to each site demanding the removal of the movie proved futile hence their legal action.
Lionsgate is therefore seeking a temporary restraining order, a preliminary injunction, as well as actual and statutory damages.
The studio is also seeking to have the defendants "take all steps necessary to recall and recover all copies of the Stolen Film or any portion thereof that they have distributed."
The movie has so far been downloaded over 1 million times
