I’m an designer by training that one had a light bulb moment day. This minute led us to keep my secure and safe $120,000 each year work and profession to construct a dating that is online we called Cheekd. Once I established, we “did it appropriate” by putting the trademarks, technology, and patents in position to make certain I became protected. We additionally had lovers and strategists, and of course my very own grit and passion as being a foundation.

One of the best possibilities of my entire life arrived whenever the chance was had by me to pitch my startup Cheekd on a bout of Shark Tank. But that time has additionally placed me personally within the cross hairs of somebody whom watched a re-airing of this episode. 2 yrs later on, that individual that is same personally me in a $1 million lawsuit that stated he “invented” the concept behind my business, while additionally accusing their previous specialist in identical lawsuit of sharing their so-called invention beside me.

The same individual whose case had already been thrown out less than one year ago, has now tendered a second lawsuit against me containing the same allegations because without reproach! Such is the Kafka-esque globe that I’ve discovered myself thrust into.

Further, he asked not merely for the “cease and desist” purchase for Cheekd, but in addition for our startup company spinoff Networkd, a Bluetooth networking software. Happily, the judge dismissed the $5 million claims, but I happened to be nevertheless forced to fight the inventor legal rights problem. I discovered myself once more fighting to guard all that We do not have in order to save what is mine that I have created over the past 12 years by spending over $100,000.

After almost 24 months and 7 months protecting my concept, my company and my patent in 2 straight back once again to back lawsuits, Honorable Judge Englemayer directed the Federal Court of NY to enter judgement when it comes to defendants (ME!) and also to «shut this instance» as «no reasonable juror may find that he’s eligible to be detailed being a joint creator.”

Just a few days later on, the threequel arrived — a whole new $10 Million lawsuit in NYC’s Supreme Court for defamation {and all types types of other claims that are frivolous.

From my conversations and investigations, its clear why these forms of frivolous legal actions are epidemic as well as the most useful PR support, strategic advisors and board of directors cannot assist overcome. Even though a member of staff of an organization is protected, an individual who boldly follows their very own eyesight and chases their particular aspirations is virtually unprotected through the absurdity of lawsuits claiming that the concept just isn’t actually yours.

Even though plaintiff’s legal actions have efficiently damaged my company, please assist me continue steadily to fight this battle by donating that which you can. While you may understand. I am your ex that never ever threw in the towel and never ever will. 100% of the thing I raise goes straight into fighting this instance until justice will finally prevail.

We appreciate you finding the time to hopefully read and share my tale as well as for your consideration in donating to my cause.
