Nevada court hits copyright troll with Fair Use surprise: "A Nevada judge has given copyright troll Righthaven until mid-December to explain why one of the law firm's targets wasn't exercising its right to Fair Use when it republished a newspaper article on its website.
'The court hereby orders the plaintiff to show cause why this case should not be dismissed under the 17 U.S.C. § 107 Fair Use exception,' US District Judge James C. Mahan of Nevada told Righthaven on November 15. Mahan also issued a 'show cause' hearing on the suit for December 15.
'Failure of plaintiff to appear shall result in the imposition of sanction for that party,' the judge's Order warns."
