How You Can Help
While the EFF supports our stand, they are pretty tapped out from the MPAA
case. That means we're fighting this one on our own and we've already had
to sink considerable funds into legal fees. We're going to need help to
get through this and we're already planning on raising funds through a
variety of methods. In addition to our not wanting to lose this
of free speech issues, the very real fact is that if we do lose the case,
Ford could potentially wipe us off the planet. They are asking the court
for everything from legal fees, "significant damages" that they intend to
prove in court (also described as "irreparable harm"), and
And that's only the financial aspect of what a loss would represent. Ford
wants the court to seize control of the domain so that it can't be used
for any purpose whatsoever. In addition, they want to be able to examine
every domain we've registered "to consider whether any such other
registration should be subject to other relief in this matter."
