Remember those assholes at Righthaven? Yeah the guys who were going around suing website owners for posting links to material whose rights were purchase by the lawsuit happy pricks. Well it looks as if their business strategy of suing everybody isn’t working out so well for them:
Despite its backing by the billionaire Warren Stephens family, Las Vegas copyright lawsuit filer Righthaven LLC warned today it may have to file for bankruptcy because of a series of setbacks in its litigation campaign.
The warning came in an emergency request by Righthaven to a federal judge in Las Vegas that he stay his order that Righthaven pay $34,045 in legal fees to attorneys who successfully defended Kentucky message board poster Wayne Hoehn against a Righthaven lawsuit.
It couldn’t have happened to nicer people.
