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.

How Does the Internet Visually Interpret 'Righthaven'? An Experiment with SHED

This lovely and fun little website was brought to my attention today: Special Holiday Emergency Desk (SHED). What do you think we typed in? According to SHED, which appears to be a combination of Flash and Google Image Search technologies, Righthaven is interpreted by the Internet in the following way: a predictably ugly and malevolent troll. The domain name auction carries on.

  1. Ode to Righthaven

    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams.
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams.
    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams.

    Malevolence will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    and laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

    Between the iron gates of fate,
    The seeds of time were sown,
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known;
    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    If no one sets the rules.
    The fate of all mankind I see
    Is in the hands of fools.

    Malevolence will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    and laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
