Legal: Newspapers vs. The Internet

Newspapers have been teaming up with a lawfirm called Righthaven, to file lawsuits against people posting copyrighted content on the web.

Righthaven's detractors call them "copyright trolls," but they say they're much needed protectors of a newspaper's intellectual property.

NPR's "On the Media" programs talks to Joe Mullin of who has covered Righthaven's lawsuits, and Righthaven CEO Steve Gibson.
