Copyright suits - site block

As far as I know, the lawsuits that caused the new TFL copyright policy have all come from one organization, the Stephens Group.

Clayton Cramer, one of the targets of their ridiculous suits, has instructions for installing a Firefox add-on that will block ALL Stephens Groups sites from your browser. Block

No point in going where I'm not wanted, I'd hate to inadvertantly infringe their copyright. And I don't want to give them half a cent in ad revenue by accidentally clicking on their sites.

Excellent, I'm all for avoiding any clicks to the Stephens group!

Going to their sites won't infringe copyrights.

Just curious, how is this gun related?

I'd say it's more along the lines of "keeping the site open" related.

The "Stephens Group" has gone lawsuit happy against blogs and forums.

Oh come on, DNS! You know questions and info in this particular forum don't have to be about guns.

Thanks for the info Mike.

Sorry, didn't realize this was in the tech support section.
