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. That is funny I put the same thing on my article on One Utah "Say Hello to my little friend Justice". No I will not be suing MAL for copyright infringement because I know great things can be thought of independently by many people.
