Expedited Discovery Leads To Addition Of Defendant To Movierumor.com Copyright Infringement Lawsuit

Los Angeles, CA – I previously posted (click here) about the copyright infringement lawsuit filed against movierumor.com by several motion production companies at the Federal District Court In Los Angeles, wherein it was alleged that movierumor’s compilation of links to websites that showed movies – currently playing in theatres – constituted copyright infringement. The production companies filed an ex parte application to conduct expedited discovery to determine the identity of the owners of the movierumor.com website. Having conducted discovery, the motion production companies have now filed a First Amended Complaint (read here) adding Ali Jaffar as an additional defendant.


The case is titled: Universal City Studios Productions, LLLP v. Movierumor.com, CV08-04931 RSWL (C.D. Cal. 2008).
