Rightscorp’s service poised to become the online copyright monetization of entertainment

Rightscorp introduces new technology that could flood the Internet with millions of notices to copyright infringers

As of late, Rightscorp Inc. Digital Copyright Protection, a provider of copyright monetization for record labels and film companies across the globe, has gained acceptance in the legal, technology and entertainment industries by addressing the flaws in the ISP’s competing six strikes system.

Now, Rightscorp has unveiled brand new technology that could flood the Internet with millions of notices to copyright infringers, according to Ars Technica. The strategy is based on telling ISPs that they will face a high-stakes copyright lawsuit if they don't forward the notices that Rightscorp creates. If ISPs agree to forward Rightscorp's notices and the users get notices that they could be liable for $150,000 in damages unless they click on a provided link and agree to settle their case at a very low price.
