American Films Announces Lawsuit Against Rightscorp and Potential Shareholder Rights Action

BAY HARBOR ISLANDS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / September 26, 2022 / American Films, Inc. (OTC PINK:AMFL) ("AFI" or the "Company") filed a lawsuit to recover in excess of $15 million against Rightscorp, Inc. and its CEO and Chairman Cecil B. Kyte ("Kyte"). The lawsuit alleges Rightscorp and Kyte lured AFI into a transaction to acquire Rightscorp, and then Rightscorp and Kyte used confidential information from the deal to reap a profit. AFI has retained Florida-based Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann, P.A. in connection with this matter (Case Number 2021-CA-000817, filed in the Circuit Court of the 20th Judicial Circuit in and for Collier County, Florida).

Furthermore, as a shareholder of Rightscorp, Inc. common stock, AFI is currently reviewing the possibility of initiating a shareholder rights action against Rightscorp, Inc. Any shareholder rights action would be brought for the benefit of all Rightscorp shareholders and the corporation, Rightscorp, Inc., itself. AFI has retained Nevada-based McDonald Carano LLP in connection with analyzing this matter.
