Copyright Troll Hammered

June 15, 2011 15:28:04.000

Looks like RightHaven is getting what it deserves:

A federal judge in Las Vegas today issued a potentially-devastating ruling against copyright enforcer Righthaven LLC, finding it doesn't have standing to sue over Las Vegas Review-Journal stories, that it has misled the court and threatening to impose sanctions against Righthaven.

This is welcome news, but it doesn't change my baseline theory - copyright and patent law in the US are fundamentally broken. Instead of encouraging innovation, they are encouraging trolling.
