Don't pick a fight with the girl scouts

They will fight back. A seemingly well-meaning and harmless website helping abused women has been sued by the Girl Scouts claiming copyright infringement.

The site appears to be utterly non-commercial, does not endorse vigilante method but urge abused wives to call the police, so you'd think it would be difficult to find something to accuse the site of.
It appears to be a case of non-profit America adopting corporate tactics to protect their operations.
The story has grotesque appeal of course, but is also interesting for a Dane. A similar action would make absolutely non sense in a Danish environment where the ties between the larger non-profits and government are much tighter making tactics such as the above unnecesary and in fact distasteful.
