Righthaven Finished

Clayton reports that they are getting assets seized for failing to pay a judgement, and notes that tomorrow (today) will be a day for dancing. It’s good to see their uppance has finally come, but I doubt this will be the last we hear about Righthaven. There’s still the matter of the money that was extorted from people, and I don’t see any reasons why Stephens Media shouldn’t be on the hook for it, since they were partners in this scam.

    Actually, there is a really good reason. Stevens Media actually owns the copyright. If you go after them for the fraud, you will be counterclaimed on the original copyright violation. And this time a technicality will not prevent Stevens from pursuing this.

    No, this is the line where smart folks will let sleeping dogs lie. Stevens will also let sleeping dogs lie because they never felt compelled to do this previously because it wasn’t worth the time and energy, with fewer targets now that right haven scared everyone into compliance, this is more true today than it had been years ago.
