Paul Heald -- one of the best minds working in the copyright field today
-- long ago mapped out a series of claims (or counter-claims) that could
be brought against spurious assertions of copyright:

Paul Heald, Payment Demands for Spurious Copyrights: Four Causes of
Action, 1 J. Intell. Prop. L. 259 (1994).


Unfortunately, asserting such claims is expensive and unpleasant, but the
law is there for anyone with the intestinal fortitude to use it.
