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 is Finito; Judge Strips Bottom Feeding Group of Copyrights and Trademark

Judge Strips Righthaven of Rights to 278 Copyrights and Its Trademark
Like a gunfighter with no bullets, Las Vegas copyright company Righthaven LLC no longer has any copyrights to sue over.
A federal judge in Las Vegas on Monday stripped Righthaven of whatever interests it has in its 278 federal copyright registrations as well as its trademark.
Judge Philip Pro ordered that the copyrights and trademarks be transferred to a court-appointed receiver so they can be auctioned to cover some of Righthaven’s debts.
Isn't this a fine ending for our "little friend" called Righthaven? The legal outfit didn't have standing to sue before this ruling and now they don't even own the copyrights. This is it finito -- except for defendants seeking attorney fees and recovering damages. The ruling came Monday in the case of defendant Wayne HoehnMarc Randazza, a Las Vegas attorney representing Hoehn, said that Pro’s order wipes out Righthaven’s interest in all of its pending lawsuits and appeals -- "It moots them."
