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.

Defense Attorney Fights for Internet Free Speech
Luke Santangelo, the founder of Santangelo Law Offices, was recently mentioned in an AmericanFreePress.net article concerning Righthaven victim Brian Hill, who is being represented by attorney David Kerr of his law firm.
