Copyfraud - by George Dance, Nolan Chart, Aug. 7, 2011:

"The threat of copyfraud is particularly ominous on the Web, where it can combine with a new phenomenon called 'copyright trolling.' Copyright trolls are law firms that 'acquire copyright licenses on articles and images, then go scouring the Web for infringers ... copyright trolls target small companies and individuals. Their business model is to pick on the relatively defenseless, threatening and intimidating people into paying settlements of a few thousand dollars' ... copyright trolls’ claims are rarely tested in court, and bogus copyright claims look as likely to go unexamined as valid ones."
