"Righthaven, the Las Vegas copyright troll formed this spring, has moved beyond lawsuits over newspaper articles and begun targeting websites for the unauthorized reposting of images. First up, more than a dozen infringement lawsuits concerning the so-called Vdara 'death ray.' ... Suing over images appears to be a new tack in Righthaven’s legal strategy. Righthaven’s business model is to acquire the copyright to content from newspaper companies .... The company then sues blogs and other websites that have posted or excerpted those articles."
