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.
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.|
