Las Vegas copyright enforcement company Righthaven LLC is now suing individual message-board posters, not just website operators.
"Righthaven, which files copyright infringement lawsuits over unapproved online postings of material from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post, filed seven infringement lawsuits Tuesday and Wednesday in U.S. District Court for Nevada, lifting its lawsuit total since March to at least 203.
Among the defendants sued Monday were message board posters identified as James Higgins and Wayne Hoehn.
