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.

Movement on the Righthaven.com Domain; Redacted Letter to Former Senator Dodd Posted

UPDATE: VEGAS INC reports that Boing Boing has identified the domain buyer as Stefan Thalberg of Zug, Switzerland. Thalberg has yet to issue a comment. The logo represents a "no jellyfish" symbol.

Blogger Bully Site Yanks MPAA's Chain in Poison-Pen Letter
The new owner of the domain name Righthaven.com, which until recently belonged to a notorious copyright troll, has used his purchase to openly mock the Motion Picture Ass. of America.
The website currently displays a heavily and ironically redacted open letter to MPAA chief Christopher Dodd, and lends support to yesterday's web-wide protest of the US Stop Online Piracy Act.
The SOPA blackout prompted sites including Wikipedia to go dark for a day.

The letter has a logo as well (possibly "no parasites"). We've posted it below.
