Sharron Angle (R-Area 51) sued by her biggest supporter

Nevada GOP candidate faces copyright lawsuit

(AP) – 1 day ago

LAS VEGAS — A company has sued Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, claiming she reprinted two Las Vegas Review-Journal articles on her campaign website without permission.

Las Vegas-based Righthaven is seeking unspecified damages in its complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

The suit alleges Angle neither sought nor received permission to display a Review-Journal article and editorial on her website this summer.

An Angle spokesman says he would not comment until the campaign's lawyers have reviewed the suit.

Righthaven tracks Internet traffic for copyright infringements of Review-Journal stories. It then buys the copyright for a story from the newspaper's owner, Stephens Media LLC, and sues the alleged infringer.

The Las Vegas Review Journal is the shittiest newspaper ever in life. Since 2008 they have lost 10s of thousands of subscribers because of their shittiness. How do they make up for that lost revenue? Sue people, get them to settle out of court.

And don't take my word for it. The folks over at ProgressNow Nevada are busy pointing out the shittiness by shinning light on the RJ's habitual errors and shameless conservative bias with their project The Las Vegas Journal Review.
