FORD APPEALS 2600 VICTORY - HERE WE GO AGAIN
Posted 31 Jan 2002 09:46:50 UTC
The Ford Motor Company is now appealing to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn our recent victory against their frivolous lawsuit which sought to prevent us from linking a web page to them. We're committed to defending ourselves and the net community against this kind of attack. But it means yet more money will have to be spent in order to do this and more time and resources wasted on something which should never have been brought to court in the first place. These are the tactics that companies like Ford use to try and crush their opposition into submission and with virtually unlimited funds, they can afford to. Despite this, we're confident that we will win the appeal as well. But we're not so confident that Ford will ever really get the message and respect the concept of free speech.
