Somehow I knew The Righthaven case would come to this!
« on: April 11, 2012, 05:34:30 PM »
Since Copyright troll Steve Gibson, Righthavens head honcho, doesn't appear to be paying up..

Review-Journal owner facing $774,000 fee demand in Righthaven case

Attorneys say the owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal should be required to pay $774,683 in legal fees for what critics call a failed ''shakedown'' copyright infringement lawsuit that threatened the free speech rights of a political website.

The attorneys represent the Democratic Underground, a website that defeated Righthaven LLC, the R-J’s copyright enforcement partner, in one of Righthaven’s copyright infringement lawsuits.

If attorneys for the Democratic Underground have their way, the family of Arkansas investment banking billionaire Warren Stephens will be paying their fees for two reasons:

• They say the Stephens company that owns the R-J, Stephens Media LLC, used Righthaven as a tool to prosecute a frivolous copyright lawsuit against the Democratic Underground.

• Even after the Stephens family invested in Righthaven, Righthaven apparently is now broke and can’t or won’t pay creditors’ claims. That would leave Stephens Media on the hook for all of the fees in the Democratic Underground case under the theory it and Righthaven are jointly and severally liable.

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Great post.  It's about time that victims demanded accountability.
I hope that they get somewhere with this.  I'd like to see this discourage others from inventing trolling schemes.
