BC Edge: Save the date! On September 8, 2010, Bryan Cave's BC Edge (a quarterly IP roundtable) will ask "Can large-scale copyright enforcement save the newspaper business?"
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.|
