If I read your question correctly, you received a summons from a internet/ cable/provider about illegal downloads. It appears as if they obtained a bunch of IP addresses where the material was downloaded to, and now they are trying to have the federal Court issue an order to provide the names and addresses of those persons, you. They have named John Doe because they don't know your name and can't access it without a court order.
At this point if your name is ***** ***** the company, then the company will demand money for the copyright infringement, or will try to name you personally in a federal lawsuit.
This is a contentious and much litigated subject, and most federal courts have denied the request to reveal the names and addresses of the subscribers, you.
There is a legal dilemma you are caught in, if you file an objection yourself, you reveal your identity. Therefore, you need a lawyer to file an objection without naming you, except through your “IP address” as one of the “targeted” individuals.
You will need to hire a federal copyright/intellectual property lawyer who handles cases in federal court to handle this. Remember, to fight this yourself, you will reveal your identity, and they will either sue you or force a settlement for tens of thousands of dollars.
I hope this helps with your question.
