Ron Futrell is a former KTNV-TV sports and news anchor. He was sued by Righthaven back in May for an alleged infringement posted to his "hobby" website named, localslovevegas.com. He notes in the end of his piece that he has many friends who are writers at the R-J and that he has "not found a single writer at that paper who is in favor of what management is doing."
Righthaven LLC -- a bottom feeding legal outfit -- has teamed up with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Denver Post to sue mom and pop websites, advocacy and public interest groups and forum board operators for copyright infringement. The strategy of Righthaven is to sue thousands of these website owners, who are primarily unfunded and will be forced to settle out of court.
|To date Righthaven has been ordered to pay $323,138 in legal fees and sanctions.|
