Four more copyright lawsuits (Righthaven) filed over photo
Four more copyright lawsuits filed over photo

Just as it’s a lightning rod for controversy, the Transportation Security Administration may turn into a litigation gold mine for Las Vegas newspaper copyright enforcement company Righthaven LLC.

Righthaven has been suing website operators and message-board posters over material allegedly posted online without authorization from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post.

Four of its most recent copyright infringement lawsuits this week were over the same Nov. 18 Denver Post photo of a TSA officer patting down the inner thighs of a passenger at Denver International Airport.

This is the same photo Righthaven sued Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report over on Dec. 8.

Drudge has not yet answered that lawsuit and it’s unknown if he’s been served.

The latest to be sued this week over the photo allegedly showing up on their websites were:

• David Rozzell, allegedly the registrant of the site katypundit.com.

• Shaquan Shamar Brown, whom Righthaven says is a Phoenix rapper known as Yung Face and has a website called ILiveHipHop.com, which calls itself the “#1 Online Hip Hop Magazine.”

• Michael L. Davis and Software Farm Inc., described as a Colorado company associated with the website urban-lifestyle.mattters.com

• Bear Den Holdings Inc. and Mike and Betsy Siino, associated with the website grizzlymom.com.

The first three suits were filed in U.S. District Court in Colorado; the fourth case was filed in federal court in Las Vegas.

“Righthaven is the owner of the copyright in and to the photograph entitled: ‘TSA Agent performs enhanced pat-downs,’” Righthaven, in its boilerplate language, charges in these lawsuits.
