I agree with everything you've said here, but even if they're just saying they have the rights, there is a reason this is a very bad thing.

If they want to say they have the rights... they've got the cash to hire a few zillion lawyers to back them up. Which means most people just won't have the resources to fight back, even if they're clearly wrong. (It is far too easy for a team of lawyers to pull all sorts of tricks whose only purpose is to cost their opponents so much time and money that they just give up. I know a woman who knows just a little bit about the system, and she did something like that when her landlord tried to evict her. She found a lawyer who sent so many interrogatories, and caused so many delays that the landlord folded. Of course, in that case, it helped that the landlord knew less about the law than I did when I was three... she didn't even understand the concept of "don't tick off the judge". But the principle remains, and is much too easy for people with enough cash to exploit.)
