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's Domain Name Sells for Just $3,300; It is a Bad Economy After All

Domain Name Used by “Copyright Troll” Auctioned Off for $3,300
Righthaven.com, the domain name that once belonged to the scourge of the internet, has sold in a public auction at SnapNames for $3,300.
The domain was bid up to $1,850 with 10 days to go, so I’m not sure if the final price is that spectacular. Righthaven owes at least $63,000.

The final auction price appears pretty low indeed. Then again, the name has been so "wholly" beaten on, it could hardly be used for a successful commercial venture, certainly not an Internet based one.

If you are the buyer, contact Boing Boing!
