Music Festival Producer Pre-Sues Bootleggers

An anonymous reader writes “Apparently, if you even have been *thinking* about bootlegging the Mile High Music Festival this coming weekend in Denver you’ve already been sued. No joke. Event producer AEG has already filed trademark infringement claims against 100 John Does and 100 Jane Does in anticipation that they’re going to bootleg the event. Since none of the sued parties have actually done anything yet, no one’s showing up in court to protest the lawsuit either, so it moves forward… meaning that AEG can use it to get all sorts of law enforcement officials (US Marshals, local and state police and even off-duty officers) to go seize bootleg material.”
