As of yesterday, Malibu Media had not filed a lawsuit within the State of Florida since September 18, 2014, with the last case being Malibu Media v. Doe, 8:14-cv-2344, which was the 311st case in the Sunshine State. Nationwide, however, the litigant’s numbers are much bigger. As of yesterday Malibu Media had filed 4,823 lawsuits among the United States District Courts.

All of the lawsuits are for alleged copyright infringement by BitTorrent downloading of Malibu Media’s “X-Art” videos.  Each case is for an alleged “site rip,” meaning the alleged downloading of multiple videos (as in several videos “ripped” from the entire X-Art website).
