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.

U.S. District Judge Philip Pro Refuses to Dismiss Copyright Suit

Settlement Reached After Judge Refuses to Dismiss Copyright Suit
Steve Green of the Las Vegas Sun reports that Righthaven won a legal victory in one of its lawsuits Tuesday when a federal judge refused to dismiss the suit. The case involves martial arts company Tuff-N-Uff Productions Inc. of Las Vegas and company President Barry Meyer.
"U.S. District Judge Philip Pro rejected a defendant’s argument that the case should be dismissed because Righthaven didn’t own the copyright to the story at the time of the alleged infringement.
This was the first ruling on a contested dismissal motion by any of the federal judges assigned to the 107 Righthaven lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for Nevada in Las Vegas since March."
