Overly offensive Legal Tactics

Boing Boing: Hideous company sends Boing Boing a pre-emptive nastygram

Seems a bit overly harsh. Wonder how much Baker and Mackenzie charged the client for writing this letter. Looks like another 'me too' internet strategy.
Oh dear lots of people seem to be using this internet thing for naughty stuff. We'll protect you by writing a letter to every website likely to violate your copyright. How do they identify the targets?
Wouldn't it be cheaper to have someone in the internet department using Technorati and Google to investigate actual violations and then report them to the lawyers? Surely marketing assistant salary will be less than a qualified lawyer salary?

Idiot company, clever lawyers.
