Righthaven now targeting websites for the unauthorized reposting of images
Righthaven, the Las Vegas copyright troll formed this spring, has moved beyond lawsuits over newspaper articles and begun targeting websites for the unauthorized reposting of images. First up, more than a dozen infringement lawsuits concerning the so-called Vdara “death ray.”

The Vdara “death ray” describes the south-facing tower at the Vdara Hotel along the Las Vegas Strip. Sunlight bounces from the tower and dramatically heats up the pool area during certain times of the day and year.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal posted a graphic to accompany a September story about the death ray, which quoted a tourist whose hair allegedly was singed by the focused sun. The reposting of the graphic, first reported by the Las Vegas Sun, is now the subject of at least 14 infringement suits brought by Righthaven on behalf of the Review-Journal.
