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.

Default Judgment Motion Filed by Righthaven; Cash and Domain Name Demanded

Righthaven Files First Judgment Motion, Demands Cash and Domain Name
Righthaven has now for the first time asked a federal judge to convert one of those clerk defaults into a monetary judgment and to award it the defendant's website domain name.
The case involves Bill Hyatt, who was sued in U.S. District Court for Nevada on Oct. 6 after Righthaven said a Review-Journal entertainment column was posted on Hyatt's website 1ce.org -- a WordPress blog called "News for Everyone."

Righthaven defendants have choices, even if most of them are unpleasant. Defaulting, however, should be avoided at all costs.
