A company associated with the Las Vegas Review-Journal is suing the popular online gambling portal Majorwager.com claiming it has posted the online newspaper's articles without permission, specifically infringing on copyrights.

Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas filed the suit this month in a Las Vegas federal court.   Majorwager.com is based out of Ontario, Canada.

No mention of the suit appeared on the Majorwager site Sunday.

Also being sued by the LVRJ are Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Inc. (CREW).  The LVRJ alleges that CREW also posted without authorization Review-Journal stories including stories about ethics and criminal investigations of Nevada Sen. John Ensign.

"We were surprised that if the Review-Journal had a problem with us, they didn't contact us," CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan told the Las Vegas Sun.

Sloan also told the Sun it was troubling that CREW was sued by Righthaven, as opposed to being sued by the Review-Journal, because she said it appears that Righthaven was assigned copyrights by the Review-Journal and, as such, Righthaven can operate as a money-making business that sues for alleged copyright infringers.

Henderson real estate agent Matt Farnham, a Realtor with RE/MAX Associates, was also being sued.
