PURZEL VIDEO GmbH,
ORDER AFFIRMING AND ADOPTING RECOMMENDATION OF THE
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
THIS MATTER is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion and Memorandum for
Default Judgment against Defendant David Ramsey (ECF No. 42). In his
Recommendation, Magistrate Judge Hegarty recommends that the pending motion be
granted in part and denied in part. (Recommendation at 1, 16-17). The
Recommendation is incorporated herein by reference. See 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(1)(B),
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b).
Magistrate Judge Hegarty advised the parties that written objections were due
within fourteen (14) days after service of a copy of the Recommendation.
(Recommendation at 1). Despite this advisement, no objections were filed to the
Recommendation. No objections having been filed, I am vested with discretion to review
the Recommendation Aunder any standard [I] deem appropriate.@ Summers v. Utah,
927 F.2d 1165, 1167 (10th Cir. 1991); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985)
(stating that "[i]t does not appear that Congress intended to require district court review of
a magistrate's factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard, when
neither party objects to those findings"). Nonetheless, though not required to do so, I
review the Recommendation to "satisfy [my]self that there is no clear error on the face of
the record."1 See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b) Advisory Committee Notes.
Having reviewed the Recommendation, I am satisfied that there is no clear error on
the face of the record. I find that Magistrate Judge Hegarty’s Recommendation is
thorough, well-reasoned and sound. I agree with Magistrate Judge Hegarty that the
pending motion should be granted in part and denied in part for the reasons stated in both
the Recommendation and this Order.
Based on the foregoing, it is
ORDERED that the Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Hegarty
(ECF No. 47) is AFFIRMED and ADOPTED. In accordance therewith, it is
FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion and Memorandum for Default
Judgment against Defendant David Ramsey (ECF No. 42) is DENIED IN PART AND
GRANTED IN PART as follows:
Judgment shall enter in Plaintiff’s favor against Defendant David Ramsey
for direct copyright infringement of the Plaintiff’s copyrighted work, as set forth in Count I
of the Amended Complaint;
Defendant Ramsey shall pay to Plaintiff the sum of $2,250.00 in statutory
damages, as authorized by 17 U.S.C. § 504(c)(1), and $710.00 for attorney’s fees and
Note, this standard of review is something less than a "clearly erroneous or contrary to
law" standard of review, Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a), which in turn is less than a de novo review, Fed. R.
Civ. P. 72(b).
costs as authorized by 17 U.S.C. § 505;
Defendant Ramsey shall permanently destroy all the digital media files
relating to, and copies of, Plaintiff’s copyrighted work made or used by him in violation of
Plaintiff’s exclusive rights, as well as all master copies in his possession, custody or
control from which such copies may be reproduced; and
Plaintiff’s request for “entry of preliminary and permanent injunctions
providing that [Ramsey] shall be enjoined from directly or indirectly infringing Plaintiff’s
rights in the copyrighted Motion Picture” is DENIED.
