Attorneys Natalie Hanlon-Leh and Spencer Ross of the firm Faegre & Benson LLP in Denver filed the counterclaim in behalf of Freedom Force Communications, The Say Anything Blog, Scott Hennen and Rob Port. They were sued Feb. 4 after the photo appeared on the Minot, N.D.-based sayanythingblog.com website.
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.|
