Righthaven drops copyright lawsuit against Angle

A company that filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against former U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle has dismissed its complaint.

A stipulation filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas states that Angle and copyright tracker Righthaven LLC have reached a confidential settlement.

Righthaven initially filed its lawsuit in September during the Senate race after Angle displayed a Las Vegas Review-Journal article and editorial on her campaign website.

Righthaven tracks Internet traffic for copyright infringements of the Review-Journal. It then buys the copyright for a story from the newspaper's owner, Stephens Media LLC, and sues the alleged infringer.

Angle was the Republican nominee before she lost to Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this month.
