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.

Righthaven Still Not Disclosing Stephens Media as an Interested Party

In the latest court filings regarding alleged copyright infringement of Las Vegas Review Journal articles Righthaven LLC of Nevada continues to omit Stephens Media as an interested party that stands to benifit from the law suits. With the release of the working agreement between Righthaven and Stephens Media it shows that Stephens Media has a 50/50 stake with Righthaven over the proceeds of any lawsuits. This omission can be used by Righthaven victims against Righthaven.

From one of Righthaven's court filings that lists interested parties:
1. Righthaven LLC, a Nevada limited-liability company;
2. SI Content Monitor LLC, an Arkansas limited-liability company; and
3. Net Sortie Systems, LLC, a Nevada limited-liability company.
Righthaven continues to defy the court by demanding remedies that our outside of copyright statute. A Nevada Federal Court has already ruled against this but Righthaven continues to do it and in fact upped the anti by also demanding the victims computers and related hardware and software.
Order the surrender to Righthaven of all hardware, software, electronic media and
domains, including the Domain used to store, disseminate and display the unauthorized versions of any and all copyrighted works as provided for under 17 U.S.C. § 505(b) and/or as authorized by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 64;
17 U.S.C. § 505 mainly deals with attorney's fees and there is no section 505(b). The fact there is no section 505(b) and the fact that this has already been pointed out it is curious as to why Righthaven continues to site a section of law that does not exist?
