Judge Rules Against Copyright Lawsuits

DENVER (AP) – A federal judge has ruled against a company fighting copyright violations saying the company didn’t own the rights to the printed materials.

The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge John Kane against Righthaven is expected to have a domino effect on the firm’s other Colorado cases.

According to the Denver Post, the Las Vegas-based company has filed 57 cases in federal court in Colorado alleging copyright infringement.

Those cases are part of a national campaign by Righthaven involving about 200 lawsuits alleging copyright theft of newspaper content by websites and blogs.

Righthaven attorney Shawn Mangano says the company will challenge the ruling.
