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.

Brian Hill and other Righthaven Victims Featured in the New York Times

Finally a major news organization writes about Righthaven and some of their victims including Brian Hill of North Carolina whose case was recently dismissed by Righthaven after a string of bad press stories over suing the mildly autistic blogger for alleged copyright infringement over the now infamous TSA image. Brian Hill recently reopened his alternative news site uswgo.com. Brian Hill's lawyer, David Kerr of Colorado, is now in the process of petitioning the Colorado District Federal Court to order Righthaven to pay his legal fees.
