If you thought it was already convoluted and twisted enough that Frederick would copy someone else's blog to defend his support of Righthaven suing other sites for doing the exact same thing to Frederick and others at the LVRJ, it's now getting even more meta. That's because, as ken points out, the owner of GametimeIP, Patrick Anderson, who had been inundated with questions about this, has decided to put the copyrights for the three blog posts in question up for sale, so that if someone wants to sue Stephens Media and the LVRJ over Frederick's potential infringement, they can do so.
In his explanation for why he is doing so, he basically notes (in much more complicated legalese -- lawyers!) that some of the folks sued by Righthaven over LVRJ content, may find it useful to sue back, in order to highlight the "inconsistent legal positions" of the LVRJ/Stephens Media. And yes, unlike Stephens Media and Righthaven, he's apparently willing to sell all of the Section 106 rights to the buyer...
