You may not remember the blackmail outfit Righthaven LLC who thought to make a tidy profit out of buying up copyrights to newspaper items and then suing anybody as much as quoting said items until they could reach a “settlement” (as in: pay this and we’ll stop harassing you), but apparently they’ve come to a much-deserved and pitiful end. Pitiful if you ever, once in your life, found yourself with an ounce of pity for those ghoulish sharks that every year try to outdo themselves in their efforts to make their profession less popular than the Allgemeine SS.
Unfortunately for them, an actual attorney (as opposed to the blood-sucking, soulless, subhuman blots on humanity that make up the likes of Righthaven LLC), one unsung hero by the name of Marc Randazza, decided to fight back on behalf of the people they were trying to rob blind and, as they say, it was all downhill for Righthaven LLC after that.
They lost case after case, ended up with huge amounts owed to the ones they unrightfully sued, couldn’t pay, lost their domain copyright (sweet, sweet irony) and now, in the latest development, showed such ineptness and contempt of court that a judge forfeited all of their existing copyrights, to be auctioned off to pay for the huge legal debts that Righthaven still haven’t paid.
Of course, the ghouls of Righthaven will probably get out of paying their debts for their predatory “law” practices, which is one of the things that is wrong with the legal system in this country.
Under His Imperial Majesty’s benign and enlightened rule, every single individual in the slightest involved with the Righthaven extortion racket would forfeit everything they owned and be sent to a hard labor camp mining for uranium in the most G-d forsaken shitholes on Earth for the rest of their lives or until such time as they’d paid off every single cent owed by them.
WITH interest. The compounded kind.
No matter what, we’d like to congratulate Marc Randazza on behalf of the entire blogging community, right and left, for his heroic efforts and success in pounding that hive of scum and villainy into fine-ground paste.
We are in awe of you and we owe you a huge debt of gratitude.
