Righthaven now suing individual message posters in internet forums and blogs
Las Vegas copyright enforcement company Righthaven LLC is now suing individual message-board posters, not just website operators. Righthaven, which files copyright infringement lawsuits over unapproved online postings of material from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post, filed seven infringement lawsuits Tuesday and Wednesday in U.S. District Court for Nevada, lifting its lawsuit total since March to at least 203.

Re: Righthaven now suing individual message posters in internet forums and blogs
Critics and defense attorneys call the lawsuits frivolous and in some cases are fighting back, hitting Stephens Media and Righthaven with counterclaims charging abuse of the court system and the copyright law.

Most of the lawsuits are settled, apparently for under five figures, and Righthaven observers are waiting for Nevada federal judges handling the contested cases to issue rulings on several motions for dismissal.

So far, the only definitive ruling is one that went against Righthaven when a judge found a Las Vegas real estate agent was protected by the fair use doctrine in posting part of a Review-Journal story on his website.

It's times like these I wish I was a lawyer. I'd figure out all kinds of ways to just try to pointlessly drain their resources.

They really are evil though maybe we should make it a goal of GLP along with other allies and bring the fuckers down once and for all. I mean in an entirely legal sense.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Thats funny. I was so worried about my posts and getting kicked off for fucking up. Now I have to worry about being sued. Thats why I stick to humor most of the time. I really can say if ya don't like it, sue me! tomato

I've heard buying debt can be quite profitable.

Re: Righthaven now suing individual message posters in internet forums and blogs
i'd say posting ewe tube vids, which let's face it, all of us have done, is technically an infringement of copyright laws.

Even PUTTING those vids on Ewe tube is an offence, technically.

now, where does this bollocks all stop? is EVERYONE going to be prosecuted?

with dead lawyers, as a poster above says, or is common sense gonna break out, and is someone gonna draw up a SENSIBLE set of guidelines for people, and webmasters, and not hit totally innocent people with lawsuits 5, 10 years down the line with massive fines they have no hope of paying, for an 'offence' which is a steaming pile of bullshit?

the 'lawmakers' need to look at this issue, and STOP all pending prosecutions, before things get totally out of hand.
