EFF files major papers challening Righthaven champerty with LVJR cases
Here’s another piece on the Righthaven mess, by Keith Hansen, at “American Free Speech”, with link. He speaks of Righthaven as a “copyright holding company”, an interesting mix of words. He also discusses the Brian Hill case.
Steve Green has a March 4 Las Vegas Sun story, in which he describes an EFF filing of “heavily redacted” court papers regarding the arrangement between Righthaven and the Las Vegas Journal Review, (website url) here. The papers would arguably show that the plaintiffs do not have a valid economic interest in the papers they have “sold” to Righthaven.
