Thanks for your quick & informative reply - always appreciated from somebody who knows & can just tell you as opposed to me searching and figuring it out. There's no chance that's gonna happen IMHO. (In my professional opinion? I've probably written more e-mail programs/interfaces than this guy LOL)
Apparently I've got to get used to how threads/replies work here because my inbox just got hit and there's nothing in the threads :(
OK this is just crap first and foremost, and I've written a few e-mail programs myself a few years later.
IANAL but can someone here tell me off the top of their head where the burden of proof resides as to whether there is any substance to this to begin with? (IE as to whether there is even a claim?) Is it up to the plaintiff to prove he invented email or the defendant to prove he didn't? I'd assume it's the former. (Yes, I know there's google but that's 1/2 hr for me and 10 seconds for someone who does this for a living so I'd appreciate a quick answer :)
I'll be supporting you however is possible, but I'm an outsourced IT worker so IDK at the moment!
This is nuts though.. The libel claim is based on you've knowingly posted lies.. and I don't know.. I don't see any evidence of that - especially when I see a load of crap. I "invented" some e-mail programs!
This is the first thing that's got me pissed off enough to register and if this (redacted) out-guns you I'll be pissed. I really hope someone puts up defense pro-bono.
