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. View the Public Catalog page
  2. Type "Righthaven" into the Search box
  3. Select "Keyword" in Search By
  4. Choose "100 Records Per Page" to show in the drop down menu.
  5. Click "Begin Search"
The results display all copyrights that Righthaven has purchased to date. As of February 17, 2011 there are 151. With this information, you can search and scrub your domains of infringing content.

Now, if there was only automated software to do all of this for you...
