Their registrar, the ever vigilant GoDaddy, then took control of the domain, taking Righthaven completely offline. Righthaven has made a business out of scouring the net for websites that have used even the smallest parts of their partner newspapers’ materials and then threatening them with legal action. Very often this results in their victims having to pay thousands of dollars in settlements and in some cases even being forced to hand over their domain names. Today, this copyright troll company is getting a sweet taste of their own medicine.
