Last week, the firm announced it was upping the stakes by <a href="/2010/05/hurt-locker-producer-to-sue-pirates.html#more">signing up Voltage Pictures</a> to sue tens of thousands more individuals for pirating &quot;The Hurt Locker&quot; and other films.Now, in a case involving Uwe Boll&#39;s &quot;Far Cry,&quot; TWC has filed a <a href="/files/dcd-04502975077.pdf" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; cursor: pointer;">third party motion</a> to quash or modify the subpoena request, asking a judge to limit discovery to no more than 28 IP address lookup requests per month &quot;because that is the outer limit of what TWC can reasonably handle.&quot; In addition, TWC says that courts have repeatedly held that a plaintiff may not join in a single action multiple defendants who have allegedly downloaded or facilitated copyright infringing works. TWC makes no specific request, but suggests that the U.S. Copyright Group should be forced to pay separate filing fees for each defendant that it sues.The move suggests that one of the nation&#39;s largest ISPs is attempting to slow a massive piracy case. In court papers, TWC outlines the burden it now faces. Read more
