    Man that’s rich, that would be like a bank that got bailed out by taxpayers using taxpayer money to then use that money to lobby the taxpayers –to not fix the laws that made the bailout necessary. 

    A blogger friend of mine had to take out a loan to pay these people off. Is there ever a point where these people get sued back so hard they are bankrupted? Where they lose their liceneses for filling frivolous lawsuits?

      As far as I know there is no point at which you lose your right to sue for nonsensical reasons.  You just keep filing them until the people you have a grudge against go bankrupt.  See the history of Scientology lawsuits.

        You can get someone declared a vexatious litigant, but it’s extremely difficult.

          It would be worth it solely because those are two awesome words to be able to call someone.

          The attempt to dodge the costs made my brain hurt, I have to say.

    Isn’t there a point where the courts can refuse to hear Righthaven’s cases on account of the nonexistance of its so-called sublicensed right to sue?

    You’d think we’d be near that point.  Or at it, even.

    My guess is they don’t care if they lose. As long as enough of their victims are scared into settling, they still win.

      pretty much nailed it right there.  Now if we could get some mass coverage of these clowns’ illegal activity and resultant ass handings so others could kick them in the jimmy as well….

    It is nice to see some legal precedents being set against copyright trolls.
