Tons of people download films illegally; there's no way the copyright police will track you down individually, right? Well, maybe, but if you're guilty of snagging a copy of one of Nu Image Films' 179 titles, specifically 'The Expendables,' the United States Copyright Group is coming for you, specifically.

Last year, the USCG joined forces with Achte/Neunte to nail 4,500 people for downloading films including 'The Hurt Locker' and 'Far Cry.' In November, a district court judge cut that defendant list down to just 140 based on jurisdiction rules. Despite some criticism over the loss of defendants, the USCG is in pursuit of that hefty number yet again and this time around is employing Nu Image and its much larger repertoire to bring a significantly higher number of people to justice.

According to THR, the USCG process will be quite similar to the 'Hurt Locker' and 'Far Cry' case. "USCG joins multiple individual defendants in a single lawsuit and subpoenas ISPs to identify its customers flagged for sharing copyrighted content." Those who are identified will get a letter demanding that they settle unless the outfit opts to conduct follow-up litigation.
