Our item yesterday about KOA talk-show host Mike Rosen seeing nothing wrong with recycling one of his old Rocky Mountain News columns in the Denver Post stirred a lively debate. Given that Nevada's Righthaven LLC has been suing news agencies for unauthorized use of Post material, one reader wonders if the firm should target the Post on behalf of the Rocky's copyright holders.
Would the current owner of the Rocky Mountain News archives be interested in Rosen's "borrowing" of their copyrighted material? If Rosen received compensation for his work with the Rocky, and the Rocky reserved all rights to their printed content, maybe Righthaven should become involved. Any attorney want to weigh in?
