I have mentioned the ambiguity of the DMCA Safe Harbor provision with respect to Righthaven to my own Congressmann (Moran D-VA) in a recent email, and will be following up in more detail soon. Congress had better get back to work! But one complication is this: recently, someone asked me to publish an article by her on 9/11 responders and their health on another of my blogs. I cannot verity that the source did not come from Stephens or a similar source, and I do not have Safe Harbor downstream protection because I cannot qualify as a service provider, unless I set up a mechanism to accept other people's submissions in some volume and regularity. That still needs to be clarified. (In that case, I wrote my own summary of what she sent me, to play it safe, and posted on the Issues Blog today.)
The Righthaven lawsuit count remains at 241, no new cases since Feb. 7.
