Righthaven, the Las Vegas copyright enforcement company, didn’t think much of Internet gossip monger Matt Drudge’s use of an image from the one of its clients so it sued The Drudge Report over use of an illustration from The Denver Post.

Filed in U.S. District Court in Nevada on Nov. 18, the company shows an “illustration” is really a Denver Post photo of a TSA officer patting down a passenger at Denver International Airport.

“Mr. Drudge has willfully engaged in the copyright infringement of the work,” the lawsuit claims.  Right haven also sued a companion site “DrudgeReportArchives,” which Drudge claims he does not operate.

Righthaven wants $150,000 and forfeiture to both drudgereport.com and drudgereportarchives.com domain names — a common tactic in their copyright claims.
