IP address-based copyright infringement cases (a.k.a. “copyright troll cases”) have evolved since they began in 2010. Our Cashman Law Firm, PLLC has been educating its readers about the legal concepts and the evolving IP address-based copyright law by writing about the cases and the issues as they have unfolded on this TorrentLawyer blog. However, our blog has grown to over 200+ articles, and it is difficult to sift through all older cases to understand what to do with the subpoena letter you received from your Internet Provider.
For this reason, we are launching an “Education” category section on our TorrentLawyer blog which will speak about the issues without mention of their context within the cases, or which copyright troll had what interaction with which court.
Below, I will do my best to keep this page current so that you can see an “index of topics” so to speak, just as one would see in a Table of Contents.
