These lawsuits are for real.

A company called BWP Media is suing radio stations and companies over the use of copyrighted photographs on their stations’ websites. BWP is taking on CBS-owned WKIS/Miami and a group of stations owned by Kemp Communications in Las Vegas over their use of material copyrighted by BWP. The copyright owner is suing for $150,000 and up; it is expected that both cases will be settled out of court.
