CITADEL and RADIO ONE have both settled copyright cases with RIGHTHAVEN LLC, the firm that is suing website operators for re-posting articles and photos from the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL and DENVER POST.
The LAS VEGAS SUN's VEGAS INC. reports that CITADEL settled the case involving CITADEL Talk WPRO-A-WEAN-F/PROVIDENCE's website and host MATT ALLEN for posting a photo from the DENVER paper in a caption contest; RADIO ONE, INTERACTIVE ONE LLC, and SEAN ANTHONY also settled over use of the same photo.
RIGHTHAVEN has come under fire for filing 274 lawsuits since MARCH 2010 against websites and message board posters for using the papers' material, even with attribution and links.
