If you have a photo or a fully-reproduced article from the Salt Lake Tribune on your website or your blog, you may soon be sued for copyright violations.See: Article in full
This has become an imminent issue, perhaps, now that the Tribune--like sister paper the Denver Post, also owned by MediaNews Group--has made an explicit warning to readers about its copyrights. Less than a month after a similar warning was issued by the Post, a blogger was sued for violating the Post's copyright.
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.|
