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.

Stunning Infographic: Hypocrisy in Hollywood by Paralegal.net

Also, if you didn't know that independent filmmakers fled to Hollywood to get away from Edison's licensing and royalty fees in the first place, now you do.
