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.

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?"



  1. Thank you for the information. You're doing an incredible service, not just for the victims, but for the future of the internet.

    These lawsuits are going to be huge news!

  2. I do not understand. Under what legal theory does RightHaven claim to have been injured? To a layman, these suits do not seem to pass the blush test.

  3. Can you post a link to a typical complaint filed with the Nevada courts?

  4. See the right column and click "Lawsuit filings on Scribd". Or click below.

  5. "Having editors contact infringers and demand or request material be taken down and/or be replaced with links is a common practice in the newspaper industry."
