Well, calling the law on someone is kind of the whiner's way out anyway. It would seem that the community could agree on a set of standards for dealing with such problems and if you don't agree to those standards, nobody routes your traffic. In other words, if network A finds network B announcing allocated space belonging to network A and network A makes them (network B) and their upstream provider(s) aware and they refuse to stop the announcement, there should be a mechanism by which the community can agree to filter Network B's AS *and* the AS of the upstream(s) until the situation is rectified. That's a pretty big hammer but verifying someone's legitimate claim on address space isn't that hard, in most cases.
