Blogger bully site yanks MPAA's chain in poison-pen letter
Dear Chris, *** ******* suck, lots of ****, Righthaven.com
The new owner of the domain name Righthaven.com, which until recently belonged to a notorious copyright troll, has used his purchase to openly mock the Motion Picture Ass. of America.
The website currently displays a heavily and ironically redacted open letter to MPAA chief Christopher Dodd, and lends support to yesterday's web-wide protest of the US Stop Online Piracy Act.
The SOPA blackout prompted sites including Wikipedia  to go dark for a day.
The letter at righthaven.com also has a few harsh words for the "lecherous lower primates" of the US Congress, along with text suggesting some sort of sexual impropriety by unspecified individuals.
Righthaven LLC was until recently a company that specialised in suing bloggers for copyright infringement to help support the business models of flagging American newspapers. In its 18-month existence it became a popular internet hate figure  after the Electronic Frontier Foundation sprung to the defence of the bedroom writers it targeted.
After suffering a humiliating court defeat last year and being ordered to pay over $34,000 in legal fees, the company fell to its knees .
Its domain name, righthaven.com, was put up for auction two weeks ago to help pay off its debts. The buyer of the name, now listed in Whois records as Switzerland-based Stefan Thalberg, paid $3,300 for the address, according to Domain Name Wire . ®
