There oughtta be an App for that

Good news on the copyright infringement trolls.
You remember them? Righthaven- the group that formed to strong-arm payments from bloggers who sent eyeballs to their client sites.
Yeah, well they got slapped with an order to pay $119,488 in attorney's fees and costs in its failed lawsuit against former federal prosecutor Thomas DiBiase.

And they're fixing to get hit with a bigger award from the disgusting site the DU (which will remain linkless)

Now..about that app- someone needs to compile a list of all Righthavens clients so that no blogger accidentally sends them a link.
You know, add a widget to Blogger, so it automatically sends a warning if the link goes to say the Las Vegas Review-Journal....


  1. This makes me happy and I'd sure like one if anyone is brighter than I am on 'puters, which should mean at least 99%!:)

  2. Joe Huffman has a page set up to check:

    It's not a phone app, but it works.
