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.

Campaign Begins to Delink the Denver Post and Las Vegas Review-Journal

Drudge Report: Urge Everyone to Delink the Denver Post and Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Petition instructs:
  1. First, remove all potentially infringing content from your site or blog.
  2. Then, remove any links you have to the DenverPost & the Las Vegas ReviewJournal or any of their other properties. Those domains include denverpost dot com, lvrj dot com, and reviewjournal dot com. Try not to send those sites any traffic or give them any “Google juice”. Generally speaking, the move links a site has the higher it will appear in Google searches. So, over time, fewer links to those sites will mean less traffic.
  3. If you can’t completely remove your links to their sites, use bare URLs in the form above or similar. Don’t use HTML links (“a href”). If you absolutely have to use an HTML link, at least put a nofollow tag on it.
