Confessions of a Moot Court Bailiff

Trolluppance? Trollkarma?

I’ll figure out the title later. For now, all you need to know is at Ars:

Copyright troll Righthaven has once again been hit with another big bill. The case, Righthaven v. Leland Wolf, targeted the It Makes Sense Blog for allegedly posting a photograph that appeared in Righthaven client the Denver Post without its permission. The court has found in favor of the defendant and has ordered Righthaven to pony up $32,147 in attorney’s fees and $1,000 in costs.

It turns out that running around filing frivolous copyright infringement lawsuits on the internet isn’t a good idea. Funny thing about that internet thing: people can figure out their rights pretty quickly.
