    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.

    Higgins, according to Righthaven, posts as Jim_Higgins on a Google Groups message board. Records indicate that on Nov. 21 he posted a Review-Journal column about Transportation Security Administration pat downs of the elderly and disabled at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The post credited columnist John L. Smith but didn't credit the Review-Journal, records show.

    um....pretty sure that as long as you give credit (which posting the link) it's considered "fair use" and these lawsuits are bullshit

    I understand that we've taken steps on it, but these guys are full of shit. It's fair use regardless.
