The Newest Righthaven Clients

Clayton Cramer reports that MediaNews Group is the newest client for the copyright trolls at Righthaven LLC. I guess if the holding company that owns you is in bankruptcy you’ll do darn near anything to make money. However, I wonder how their on-line ad revenues will be after this.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Righthaven filed its first suit outside of Nevada. They filed in Charleston, SC for an alleged copyright violation from the Denver Post. This brings to 180 the number of lawsuits that Righthaven has filed claiming copyright infringement.

I had thought that like good little trolls, Righthaven might have stayed under the bridge with the shakeup at the Las Vegas Review-Journal but no such luck. The only think I am sad about in the list of papers below is that I’ll have to miss Don Surber’s column in the Charleston, WV Daily Mail. I have listed all the MediaNews Group papers below with their links in case you want to add them to your blocked list.

According to the Las Vegas Sun story:

In California, Media News is part of a partnership called the Bay Area News Group that includes Stephens Media. An affiliate of Stephens Media has invested in Righthaven and, until now, all of Righthaven’s lawsuits involved the Stephens Media-owned Las Vegas Review-Journal.
