Corbin Fisher Advises Legit Users to Back Up Data

LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Corbin Fisher corporate parent Liberty Media Holdings, the plaintiff in Liberty Media v FF Magnat, a copyright infringement lawsuit filed recently against file locker service, issued a  press release today warning legitimate users of to back up their files by the end of the month:

If there are any users of who use the site for lawful, non-copyright infringing purposes, they are advised to back up their files. Liberty Media Holdings LLC recently filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against in U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. (Case No. 2:12-cv-01057 (D. Nev.)

According to Oron's attorneys, the case imperils all Oron users' data. Oron's attorneys told the court, "If Oron's servers are shut down for non-payment of those monthly hosting fees ... its users - 99.9 percentof whom have no connection to this litigation - will lose access to their data."

This leads us to believe that Oron neither maintains nor is instituting any backup of user data. Therefore, if there are any legitimate users of Oron out there, Liberty Media Holdings advises them to back up any important files for which they are the proper owner or licensee. 

In an emergency motion filed with the court last week, said it needed addition funds released into its possession because its hosting provider, LeaseWeb, had demanded advance payments, with individual payments due on July 1 and July 9. The court denied the release of extra funds late Friday.
