Legal Lasso: Denver Post Copyright Cases Put On Hold

Compiled by Don Knox, Matt Masich and Ali McNally, LAW WEEK COLORADO

COPYRIGHT ENFORCEMENT COMPANY Righthaven has filed nearly all of its lawsuits—nearly 300 now—in two states, Nevada and Colorado. Now all of the 35 cases it has pending in Colorado have been put on hold, PaidContent.org reports. That’s because the judge overseeing those cases wants to determine whether Righthaven has standing to sue in the first place, before the suits move forward. The contracts that the company has struck with its main newspaper clients, the Las Vegas Review-Journal and The Denver Post, are being attacked as invalid by some defense attorneys.
