Colleen Lynn is an admitted copyright infringer — at least by the standards of Las Vegas newspaper copyright enforcement company Righthaven LLC.
The Austin, Texas, woman hasn’t been sued by Righthaven, but in recent weeks she has emerged as one of the most vocal behind-the-scenes critics of Righthaven’s lawsuit campaign in which at least 117 bloggers and website operators have been hit with lawsuits since March.
Most defendants say they were sued without warning or even a request to take down the material at issue.
