The End of Righthaven
The End of Righthaven

Listen
AIR DATE: March 26, 2012

A federal judge in Denver dismissed five more lawsuits filed by Righthaven, the Copyright infringement lawsuit filer.  Eight different federal judges have ruled against Righthaven, claiming that the company lacked standing to sue because of copyright assignment.  Four former defendants are actually going after Righthaven for thousands of dollars.  Righthaven CEO Steve Gibson says he doesn't have the money to pay.  We look at the history of Righthaven and how it met its demise so quickly.

The story you've linked to was not published by the LVRJ. In truth, the disgusting management of LVRJ spawned this legal horror. This is a big mistake and deserves immediate correction.
