One of the website operators accused of copyright infringement by Righthaven LLC has retaliated, hitting the Las Vegas company with a class-action counterclaim seeking to represent defendants in all 57 Righthaven cases in Colorado.See: Article in full | View: Class-Action Counterclaim
The claim seeks an adjudication that Righthaven’s copyright infringement lawsuits amount to unfair and deceptive trade practices under Colorado law, an injunction permanently enjoining Righthaven from continuing the alleged unfair and deceptive trade practices, an unspecified financial award to the class-action plaintiffs for damages as well as their costs and attorney’s fees.
The bringer of the class-action counterclaim is Buzzfeed, represented by attorneys with the Denver law office of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP. Buzzfeed was sued by Righthaven in March.
