Copyright troll is a pejorative term for a party that enforces
copyrights it owns for purposes of making money through litigation,
in a manner considered unduly aggressive or opportunistic,
generally without producing or licensing the works it owns for paid
distribution. Critics object to the activity because they believe
it does not encourage the production of creative works, instead it
makes money from the inequities and unintended consequences of high
statutory damages provisions in copyright laws intended to
encourage creation of such works. The term for and conception of a
copyright troll began to appear in the mid-2000s. It derives from
"patent trolls," which are companies that enforce patent rights to
earn money from companies that are selling products, without having
products of their own for sale.
