Well, study up. The secret is out. An excerpt:
“As many defendants in Righthaven actions have argued, Righthaven does not truly own the copyrights it sues over,” Marc John Randazza, one of the attorneys for the Media Bloggers Association, said Friday in a blog post titled in part “Does the House of Cards Collapse?”
He said Righthaven’s lawsuits seem to run afoul of case law.
