Newspaper Publisher Sues Guy For Posting Article Based On Research He Gave The Paper For Free
from the going-a-bit-far? dept
Apparently, Righthaven and LVJR continue to file these kinds of lawsuits, and they just keep getting more ridiculous. Michael Scott points us to to the fact that Righthaven has sued a guy named Anthony Curtis, who reposted an article from the LVJR that talked about research Curtis had done on ticket prices for entertainment shows in Vegas.
If you're playing along at home, the LVJR published an article based on research -- which it got for free -- from Curtis, and when he then tries to highlight that article, the LVJR sues him. As the MediaPost story notes, the LVJR article about Curtis' research even notes that his annual survey is a "thankless task." Thankless, indeed.
