69 Shaking Out the "Shakedowns": Pre-discovery Dismissal of Copyright Infringement Cases after Comparison of the Works at Issue

In an era of copyright trolling, digital distribution and reappropriation of creative works, the specter of “shakedown” copyright infringement litigation looms larger than ever before.  Some plaintiffs will hold the prospect of expensive and time-consuming discovery over alleged infringers to provoke settlement.  In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decisions in Bell Atlantic Corp. v.
