Righthaven Loses MTD

Everyone's favorite bluetool lost a Motion to Dismiss on Tuesday based upon the application of fair use doctrine - the first of what will hopefully be many in his overzealous copyright suit-o-rama.

The attorney who handed Gibson the loss was Sergio Salzano of Lynch, Hopper & Salzano, LLP. U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks was presiding.

Although the court dismissed Righthaven’s claims, Salzano and Gibson reached a confidential settlement based upon "other potential infringements."

Do you think bluetool would go after the guys that mashed up the Antoine Dobson interview?

I heard that while the judge was ruling bluetool was grabbing his crotch.
