WWE Going After BitTorrent Users for Copyright Infringement

WWE is apparently going after a group of BitTorrent users in a copyright infringement claim, according to Worldipreview.com.

The lawsuit was filed last Thursday in the United States District court of Connecticut. The suit claims that users (who have been unidentified) infringed its copyright to “unlawfully acquire, reproduce, and distribute” the 2016 WWE Studios film Eliminators. WWE is seeking actual damages, statutory damages of $150,000 per infringement, costs, and jury trial.
