Frivolous lawsuits threaten the livelihood of
small businesses across America. One particular individual has
claimed a monopoly on a common-sense and long-standing method of posting and
organizing race images online. Ten photography companies have been
sued, and nine have settled the lawsuits as litigation costs are far
beyond the reach of most small businesses. There are more than 30
race photography companies in the US, leaving at least 20 event
photographers wondering "Will my business be next?"
Help End Patent Abuse
These lawsuits affects dozens
of small businesses, hundreds of event photographers
and employees, thousands of race events and
millions of athletes who participate in these events.
Worst of all, these lawsuits siphon money away from the many worthy
charitable organizations that raise funds for important causes like
cancer research, services to military veterans, services to
disadvantaged children and local community organizations.
Help us to end this specific case of patent abuse. The patent system is designed to protect legitimate
innovators. Instead, the patents in question create an
unfair monopoly and discourage competition.
Only with your help can we permanently end these
which affect so many. Your donations will be used to defend
against and/or overturn the claims in these patents. Please consider a donation of $50 to $500,
and even more if you can. Even $25 helps to get closer to our goal!
Remember, United We Stand. Divided, companies have
fallen, one by one. Together we can end this threat once and for all.
Time is of the essence. Thank you for your support!
