Voltage Pictures, which is represented by the Singaporean legal firm Samuel Seow Law, filed a motion in 2015 to get Singapore telecommunication companies to release the details of Singapore internet subscribers who illegally downloaded copies of Dallas Buyers Club.
Voltage is now pursuing the same legal action in conjunction with Fathers & Daughters Nevada LLC for the 2015 film Fathers and Daughters starring Russell Crowe. A spokesperson for the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore said it has reviewed intellectual property positions taken in jurisdictions such as Australia, Britain, Canada, and the United States. The spokesperson noted, “While content owners have the right to enforce their intellectual property rights, this should be done in a way that builds legitimacy and respect for the entire process, and is not susceptible to allegations of abuse.”
