The new CEO of MediaNews Group recently admitted that it was actually a bad idea for the country’s 2nd biggest newspaper chain to cooperate with copyright troll Righthaven


John Paton took over as the chap in charge of posting the Denver Post and fifty other newspapers from Dean Singleton. The latter thought it was a great idea to collaborate with a law company named Righthaven in order to hound bloggers through the courts, accusing them of citing his company’s news articles, but the current chief executive doesn’t think so.

John Paton is reported to admit that this particular arrangement would be over at the end of September. He also admitted that the issues about copyright were true, but the very idea that you could have hired a firm on a success fee to pursue people on your behalf that may or may not have violated copyright as a method of protection was actually daft. Moreover, John Paton insisted that he though it was a dumb idea from the very beginning.

As for the Las Vegas-based Righthaven law firm, it was founded over a year ago with the aim to raise cash through copyright violation lawsuits. And this might have worked if the legislation had not got in their way. Thus far the law firm hasn’t prevailed in court on any of the copyright lawsuits that have been filed over MediaNews’ articles. Nevertheless, Righthaven has still succeeded in collecting money from two dozen of out-of-court settlements, made because accused people agreed to pay up due to the threat of court action.

As you might know, there have been a lot of law firms around, engaged in so-called “commercial invoicing”, i.e. threatening people to pay something about $500 to avoid the court action, which partly worked, as people couldn’t afford expensive court representative and so on. John Paton admitted that if he was the newspaper’s chief last year, he most likely never would have partnered with such law firm. Meanwhile, a MediaNews vice-president, Sara Glines, claimed that those cases would likely remain active as Judge Kane weighs if the law firm in question has standing to sue over the Denver Post content. At the same time, Righthaven hasn’t filed another case in 2 months, which means it looks like once this current batch is processed it will mean the end of this ridiculous troll.

fusseltier avatarthis is the problem in america, too many lawyers and they are mostly dishonest.
they need to do like in europe, because if lawyers were required to learn Latin, there would be fewer lawyers.
also, any lawyer engaging in any practice like this should be disbarred.

menahunie avatarDon't settle is my opinion. Make them take you to court. But before that happens counter sue them as well and see the fun start. I'd pay to see that; lawyers suing lawyers. Like the dog chasing its tail..
