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.

More Righthaven Cases Dismissed; Only 29 Still Open Since the Birth of this Copyright Troll

Seven More Righthaven Suits Dismissed
Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas suffered yet another setback Friday when a federal judge dismissed seven more of its newspaper copyright infringement lawsuits ... The suits dismissed Friday were against the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Thomas Chandler, Hawaii Tourism Association Inc., Ryan Burrage, Inkosonic Networks, Isaac Rosete and Ecological Internet Inc.
Of the 275 lawsuits filed by Righthaven, beginning in March 2010, only 29 cases remain open. VEGAS INC also reports that the remaining cases are all located in Nevada and are likely slated for dismissal. Given the incommunicado status of Righthaven's attorney Shawn Mangano and the company's empty bank account, it seems the days of filing "sham copyright assignment" lawsuits are over for Righthaven. How prevailing defendants will recover their legal fees continues to be unresolved.
