PostSubject: Carol Shelby Lawsuit - Please Read   Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:47 pm

I was asked to post the following by the owner of the FFCobra site.

FFCobra.com LEGAL DEFENSE FUND - PLEASE HELP

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As many of you know, FFCobra.com, along with Factory Five and one of their dealers, has been sued by Carroll Shelby, Shelby Trust and Shelby Licensing. You can read the complaint filed by clicking here. http://www.iptrademarkattorney.com/carrol-shelby-trademark-complaint-lawsuit-trade-dress-factory-five.pdf.
Please refrain from making any derogatory comments on the forum about anyone involved in this matter and try not to give Shelby any ammunition in this case.

I'm confident that we will prevail, but it's going to cost money to fight and that's why I need your help. I know times are tough and I didn't want to have to get any help, but the first legal bill arrived last week and it was $5,000. This is the first of many monthly bills to come.

This site is not a big money maker. I have a real job and this site is just a hobby. The only way I’m able to keep this site running is because of the help of our great moderators, generous supporting members, wonderful advertisers, and members like you. Without all of this synergy, this site would be nothing.

Because of Shelby's actions, Factory Five's lawyers felt it was prudent for FFR to pull their ads. They didn’t pay December or January’s bill and now we have the legal bill to pay. This is why I'm asking for some help.

You can make a donation by PayPal by clicking here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=2647148

If you want to send a check, please mail it to:

Bill Peirce
3939 Royal Drive NW, Suite 139
Kennesaw, GA 30144

Please tell everyone you know about this and post this link to any discussion forum you can think of. People who use forums should support this cause because if Shelby prevails, it might affect many, many other people and forums.

Thanks!

- Bill


I've been a member of the ffcobra.com forum for over 2 years and have found it to be an extremely valueable source of information, not to mention motivation, while building our MK III Roadster (No reference to c***a). Please consider helping to fight what is shaping up to be a lengthy and expensive battle.

Thanks

Rich Pierce

Hasn't the old chicken farmer put several other Cobra replica companies out of business? He's an irracible old ass clown and I've never liked him.

FF has a new exotic mid engine car kit out that's not a replica of anything, right? kind of like a Mosler or an Ultima IIRC.

Maybe that's the direction they should go in, since anything Cobra is now lawyer fodder.
