"Citizen Media Law Project" & the Connections

Whatcha think about this Law firm and their work/projects?

From "Wired News" (and while you are there -check out their latest post too on Google and the gov.) - Newspaper Chain's New Business Plan: Copyright Suits "Gibson's vision is to monetize news content on the backend, by scouring the internet for infringing copies of his client's articles, then suing and relying on the harsh penalties in the Copyright Act — up to $150,000 for a single infringement — to compel quick settlements. Since Righthaven's formation in March, the company has filed at least 80 federal lawsuits against website operators and individual bloggers who've re-posted articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, his first client."
