July 16 (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Pietz, a Los Angeles copyright lawyer, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about fighting Chicago-based Prenda Law Inc. in federal court for its abusive copyright infringement litigation tactics. Since 2010, Prenda Law, under various names, has initiated hundreds of copyright infringement lawsuits, accusing defendants of unauthorized downloading of adult films copyrighted by the law firm.

In May 2013, U.S. District Court Judge Otis Wright issued punitive sanctions against Prenda Law under the court's inherent supervisory authority. Pietz, in this "Rainmakers" episode, also discusses the court's rationale for sanctioning the copyright-trolling group of lawyers.
