Townsend is gathering stories of scholarly copyright issues of every ilk.

Wired on BitTorrent.

Can't read this article yet, but it appears that small copyright controllers do not carry the same clout as the larger ones.

As far as the third link, all the guy did was e-mail the person who had is software listed and tell him to remove it or he would call the hosting ISP. There was some fake e-mail responses. In the end, he apparently just accomplished getting the same product renamed on the website, which remains up. The site was never "brought down."

Upon reading it, that third link is rather boring. /. really does need to implement some sort of cache system to avoid the Slashdot Effect. Anyway, it's still interesting that the credit card/international/forgery issues are what won him the case, not the IP claims.
