TechDirt reports that concert producers are pre-suing potential bootleggers claiming trademark infringement for something that hasn't happened yet, and simply listing out hundreds of John Doe and Jane Does who can later be filled in. As a part of this, they're using the lawsuit to ask the court to order US Marshalls, local and state police and even off-duty officers to go ahead and seize and impound the bootlegged material.
Since the crime hasn't been done yet, it seems unlikely that any defendants will show up in court to defend themselves or to protest the lawsuit. This in turn allows the lawsuit because there's no one to contest it, because who's going to contest such a lawsuit?
