59783613 story RightsCorp To Bring Its Controversial Copyright Protection Tactics To Europe 196 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Wednesday May 07, 2014 @07:46AM from the export-grade-copyright-trolls dept. judgecorp (778838) writes "RightsCorp, the controversial copyright enforcer, is planning to begin operations in Europe. In the U.S., the company scans torrents for IP addresses on behalf of media companies, shares them with ISPs, forcing them to send lawyers' letters (using the DMCA) demanding money from the supposed copyright infringers. RightsCorp says Europe needs its help in fighting piracy." They recently expanded operations into Canada as well.
