A body blow to Righthaven

A judge has delivered a body blow to the Righthaven copyright trolls. Judge Roger Hunt has unsealed the contract between Righthaven and Stephens Media, which shows that Righthaven has not acquired any rights to the content in question other than the right to sue for infringement. This may scuttle the entire affair, since it doesn’t seem likely that the right to sue for infringement is transferable in isolation from other substantiative rights. Certainly it should not be.
