Clayton Cramer is reporting that our friends at Righthaven have been smacked down by a federal court who has dismissed one of their lawsuits for lack of standing. On top of that, the Court is considering applying sanctions to Righthaven. More from Righthaven Victim’s blog here. Steve Gibson also appeared defiant and petulant in an Interview with Wired, claiming there can now be no doubt about Righthaven’s assignment of those copyrights.
I wish Clayton and others best of luck in getting what’s owed to them back. Righthaven or no, the system is still horribly broken that this kind of shakedown was even possible.
