Great News--Copyright troll’ Righthaven looks to DISMISS suit against Democratic UndergroundSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Wed, 11/17/2010 - 19:24
Citing "the spirit of judicial economy," Righthaven, LLC., a company that makes its money by forcing settlements through copyright lawsuits, said it wanted to drop its claim against a liberal forum community which it sued over a four-paragraph excerpt from The Las Vegas Review Journal.
The company's recent motion to dismiss noted that they wanted to drop the suit due to a decision by Nevada federal judge Larry Hicks, who recently dismissed a similar claim brought by Righthaven.
After being sued, Democratic Underground (DU) sought the help of the Electronic Frontiers Foundation (EFF), which filed a counter-claim on their behalf. Righthaven asked that EFF's suit be dropped as well
