Sorainen has assisted the Kino Pavasaris Vilnius International Film Festival with the removal of counterfeit copies of the Oscar-winning movie “Parasite” from illegal torrent sites in Lithuania.

The movie was included in the digital festival's March 19 – April 2, 2020, program.

Sorainen reports that some infringers removed the content voluntarily upon demand, while others required a special administrative procedure before the Lithuanian Radio and Television Commission, which issued administrative orders that were later sanctioned by the courts. Several thousand people had seen “Parasite” illegally, the firm reports, resulting in Kino Pavasaris, which distributed the firm in Lithuania, suffering a loss of tens of thousands of euros.

Sorainen's team included Partner Daivis Svirinas, Counsel Stasys Drazdauskas, and Legal Assistant Paulius Mockevicius.
