We recently wrote about the lawsuit that was filed against 5,865 alleged downloaders of the B-movie Nude Nuns With Big Guns
by Camelot Distribution Group. In many ways, the lawsuit seemed like many of the other mass infringer shakedown lawsuits... but there was one element that made it interesting. A second company, Incentive Capital, said that Camelot didn't hold the copyright in question. Basically, Camelot had borrowed money from Incentive in order to purchase the copyright to the movie in question, but failed to payback the loan and Incentive had foreclosed on the film.
Camelot continued to push forward with the lawsuit and, in an amusing twist, Incentive Capital has filed an almost identical lawsuit against the exact same 5,865 alleged downloaders
I wonder if Camelot would file a copyright infringement lawsuit against Incentive for copying its lawsuit (though, (1) I doubt that Camelot registered its lawsuit and (2) there would be reasonable claims that much of the copied parts were not subject to copyright). Still, the whole thing is kind of amusing (assuming you're not one of the 5,865 being sued twice).
