Another US movie studio has filed suit against users alleged to have illegally viewed movies with the Popcorn Time app.
In a lawsuit [ filed in the Portland US District Court, the production company behind the 2015 film Survivor accuses 16 unnamed users of pirating its film.

According to Survivor Productions Inc., the 16 Does used the open-source Popcorn Time application to illegally view the Pierce Brosnan action flick via torrent. While no names were given, the production company says it has IP addresses and geolocation information for the 16 defendants.

The case is the second to be brought in the US against Popcorn Time. The studio behind the Adam Sandler film The Cobbler brought suit in Nevada against 11 Does alleged to have streamed the film.
In Norway, a pro-copyright lobbying group claims it has a list of 75,000 Popcorn Time users who could be facing legal action for streaming movies illegally.


Once again this simply shows how easy it is to hammer folks using bit torrent tech, Popcorn Time makes usage of the viewers resources (p2p style) to spread the streaming material so this was an expected occurence.
