Default Copyright Trolls Auction Off File-Sharing Settlements

Wow, just when you thought it was impossible to sink any lower, these copyright trolls are setting records at how low they can go. A German law firm has started an auction to sell the unpaid settlements of 70,000 alleged file-sharers to the highest bidder. The 'debt' belongs to people who thus far failed to settle with a copyright holder, and would be worth 90 million euros if recouped entirely. This controversial move opens up room for a new group of outfits to join the "pay-up-or-else" scheme the aggressive debt collectors.
