A New Complication for Writers of Online Content

I received the following email alert this morning and believe it's worth sharing.

An alert from Wooden Horse:

Be careful if you write online and quote other sources, even in comments. In a recent blog post we highlighted a company called Righthaven LLC - a business founded solely to monitor and sue small websites and blogs.

To find out what Righthaven and other "copyright trolls" have been doing, read the Wooden Horse blog and then please, please, warn others. You have our permission to post all or parts of our blog post where appropriate, as long as you credit Wooden Horse Publishing at

Wishing everybody safe and successful online publishing,

Meg Weaver
