Judge Orders Failed Copyright Troll to Forfeit ‘All’ Copyrights

Righthaven, a copyright-troll law firm that failed in its attempt to make money for newspapers by suing readers for sharing stories online, was dealt a death blow on Tuesday by a federal judge who ordered the Las Vegas company to forfeit all of its intellectual property and other “intangible property” to settle its debts.
