Signed and official: Samuel Seow enters agreement with Migriño Rivera & Cruz Law Firm
Last October 10, 2015, Patrick Achache (one of MaverickEye’s founders) visited Samuel Seow, MaverickEye’s partner lawyer in Singapore, as the latter signed an Association Agreement with a new law firm in Manila, Philippines – the Migriño Rivera & Cruz.
According to the law firm’s Facebook page, “The Firm expands globally and to its ASEAN neighbours as it enters into an Association Agreement with Samuel Seow Law Corporation, Singapore and Seow & Associates, Malaysia.”
We highly congratulate Samuel for this expansion.

Dallas Buyers Club
Dallas Buyers Club (DBC) is a biographical drama film directed by Jean-Marc Vallee and starred by Matthew McConaughey. It was released in 2013, and since then, lots of illegal copying and file sharing have been recorded across the US and different countries. Last year, the first few cases were filed against alleged infringers in the US, and this year, the fight continues as MaverickEye and its partner law firms gather data and identify owners of infringing IPs in Australia, Singapore, and many other territories.
DBC Case in Singapore
The press has regarded the proceedings in Singapore controversial, although the program has been successful in the US, the UK, and especially in Germany where piracy has dropped by over 30% since 2009. Here’s some of the most recent news:
- Dallas Buyers Club case: Complaint filed against US studio’s lawyers here
- ‘Pay $5k for illegal download of movie’
MaverickEye has successfully delivered data which has not been questioned by the Singaporean court. This again is evidence that the company’s data is very robust.
“Singapore is a very important market for our clients”, Patrick Achache said, “and they need to be protected from people illegally obtaining and redistributing their works.”
As final remarks, Mr. Achache said “The law in Singapore is there, but it takes someone to enforce it.”
