Facing Down A Copyright Troll

Facing Down A Copyright Troll in Federal Appeals Court

Quote
Copyright troll Righthaven LLC just doesn't know when to stand down. Faced with six district court judges determining it didn't have the right to sue people over copyrights it didn't own, it turned to a higher power: the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. On Tuesday, EFF appeared before that court to argue against Righthaven on behalf of one of its victims.

Podcasting Community Faces Patent Troll

Podcasting Community Faces Patent Troll Threat; EFF Wants to Help

Another day, another patent troll. The troubling trend of suing downstream users and content providers really makes us mad. First it was the app developers, then those who scan documents to email. Now, the latest outrage: podcasters. EFF wants to help organize those facing the threat so that we can gauge the size of the problem and hopefully help people find counsel and a way to work together in response.
