Judge Grants Subpoena Allowing Marvel To Probe Goggle For Avengers: Age Of Ultron Leak

20131113230605!Marvels-logoA federal judge has approved Disney / Marvel's request for a subpoena against Google to investigate how and who leaked the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer on October 22nd.

The subpoena, issued November 5th, orders Google to bring all identifying information for the user "John Gazelle" to court November 18th in San Francisco. The subpoena fell short of the initial request by Marvel for access to the Google property.

Marvel wants "the IP address from which the file named 'ap-tlr-l_int_360p.mp4' and containing content known as Avengers: Age of Ultron was uploaded to the Google Drive Site" and everything else they can get on this John Gazelle.

It is believed that the company thinks they are looking for an infringer either inside Marvel or Disney or a production house handling the prized trailer.
