Bogus Copyright Claims Under SOPA

Mike Masnyck, writing in Techdirt asks a valid question: Shouldn’t There Be Significant Punishment For Bogus Copyright Claims That Kill Companies?

If enforcing their rights involves completely destroying someone else's company, then, as Goldman notes, shouldn't it be difficult?

Fighting a copyright claim costs at least 1 million dollars in legal fees, whether or not the claim is valid. Companies with deep pockets can and do use bogus claims to road-kill new competitors. For example, Luma Labs and their amazing camera straps. How can we stop this?
