News aggregation impresario Matt Drudge is being sued for copyright infringement for reproducing a copyrighted photo along with a link to a story about airport security on the Las Vegas Assessment-Journal internet site.
The plaintiff in the situation is Righthaven, a firm that's earned a track record this year as a planet-course copyright troll. Righthaven has sued virtually 200 parties this year on your own. Righthaven has usually gone after these who publish reports excerpts of its partners, such as the Las Vegas Critique-Journal, but pledged to be more discretionary immediately after currently being handed a defeat in court by a choose who not too long ago dominated that one of its targets had "truthful use" to its work.
Rather, Righthaven announced it had teamed up with the nation's 2nd-biggest news chain, owners of the Denver Post amid others, and has now filed a lawsuit that arguably takes the mass-suer to a total new degree with its most significant goal nevertheless ( via arstechnica.com ).
