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.

  1. I have created a graphic for bloggers to put on their sites to alert newspapers that they will not link to them if they associate with Righhaven. Anyone is free to download the graphic and display it on their blogs. If we can get this on thousands of sites it will send a powerful message to Righthaven client newspapers.


    I have also written an article that can be found at this link:

    Great idea! Can you also make a narrower version, say 150 to 160 max? A lot of sites have space for narrower buttons. Super job! See right column here as well as the Daily Paul: http://dailypaul.com/

  3. This is a article talking about the lawsuit against me: http://www.federaljack.com/?p=19607

    Also another article was created exposing RightHaven as a honeypot trap:


  4. Torq Cisek is a well known Click Fraud scammer. If this is the same Torq Cisek, Righthaven will have a dandy time getting any money from him!


  5. Contact the EFF. This TSA image is turning out to be a gold-mine for Righthaven. In a way this is entrapment because neither the Denver Post nor Righthaven did anything to midigate this photo going viral in fact maybe even encouraged it and when it did they sprung their trap. I'm not a lawyer but there could be an argument made that since this image was of a historical event of a broadly reported story that the use of this image in reporting the actual facts depicted in the image may be fair use.

    Another thing you could do is appeal to Righthaven that you are not worth the bother.
    let them know you have no income of any significants and the ultimate result of any lawsuit on their part will be completely uncollectable. Also they have not actually served many of the people they have filed lawsuits on so don't think that legal action is a given just because they have threatened it.


Comments that persecute Righthaven victims will be deleted.
