Righthaven LLC exists to derive parasitic benefit from copyright law. The company spots what it thinks are copyright violations, then buys the copyright of the articles in question, then it sues the supposed violators, in that order. It has filed hundreds of lawsuits against websites and bloggers for supposed infringement of articles from the Las Vegas Review Journal, and the Denver Post.
Some of those being sued are fighting back now, and there have been a number of court rulings against Righthaven. A suit against Wayne Hoehn has resulted in dismissal, with a court order for Righthaven to pay legal fees.
Righthaven is likely to appeal execution of the court order for collection of its assets, but the problem of paying $63,000 has caused the company to ponder bankruptcy.
