They don't have to be able to legitimately require it.  They just have
to have sufficient power to induce a settlement through fear.  If you
don't have money to defend yourself with, you have no legal rights
(in civil cases) at all.

If anyone at all sent me a C&D letter about anything at all, I'd bend over
backwards to comply.  I'm not rich enough to afford lawyers and not poor
enough to be judgment proof -- to say nothing of possible injunctions.
