Global Verge sent out an email to the Global Verge and Global Mobile 1 distributors stating the Global Verge attorneys were going after bloggers for purported slander after Chris Greco of Activation King Wireless and Unlimited Wizard contacted MLM Help Desk last Thursday.
So what is it, that MLM Help Desk, or more specifically Me – Troy Dooly said to cause Global Verge to issue the following segments from an email Ted Robbins the President of Global Verge sent to the e-associates?
It certainly has been both a hectic and exciting week here at Corporate and I would like to take this time to bring you up to date on some of the things that have been happening.
First of all, as I mentioned on this past Thursday night?s corporate call, the blogger?s have been out in full force. Without going into too much detail this blogger activity started with someone printing statements from a disgruntled vendor who was denied system access after we determined fraudulent activity on his part. This disgruntled vendor contacted a blogger with false claims. The blogger in turn printed these claims without verification.
We have proof of everything and there is not a single bit of the information that is being printed that is true. Unfortunately in today’s world, there are those that attempt to benefit from the work of others as well as those that try to profit by attempting to bring others down.
I believe in the philosophy that what goes around comes around. Therefore, because of my belief system, I stand on the knowledge that the proof will be in the pudding.
That said, I want to let you know that Global Verge is not sitting idly by while these bloggers slander us. Our lawyers have contacted the parties involved and the false allegations will be dealt with through the court system.”
Well, we have not been contacted by any attorney representing Global Verge, although we have heard from Global Verge triple diamonds who took offense at the fact I personally called them out in this continual shell game.
Now, let’s take a look at the law where it covers slander, liable, defamation where bloggers are concerned.
Now, the question is… Have we published anything which can be seen as slanderous, liable or deflationary? I think that depends on who is right and who is wrong. If Global Verge is telling the truth, and nothing but the truth, then they will take offense to what we published. However, if Chris Greco is telling the truth and nothing but the truth. The Global Verge should not feel sad about what we published, they should feel bad about screwing their distributors for this long.
Here is the summery of Section 230 of the federal law.
* Section 230 grants interactive online services of all types, including news websites, blogs, forums, and listservs, broad immunity from certain types of legal liability stemming from content created by others.
* This immunity covers defamation and privacy claims, as well as negligence and other tort claims associated with publication. See the Risks Associated with Publication section of our legal guide for more information on the legal claims online publishers may face.
* You will not lose this immunity even if you edit the content, whether for accuracy or civility, so long as your edits do not materially alter the meaning of the original content. We analyze in detail the types of activites that are covered by Section 230 and those activities that fall outside its protections in the Online Activities Covered by Section 230 and Online Activities Not Covered by
Section 230 pages of our legal guide.
* Section 230 does not apply to copyright infringement claims and other intellectual property claims. For information on protecting yourself from these types of claims, see the section on Protecting Yourself Against Copyright Claims Based on User Content in our legal guide.”
The above protects our subscribers as well as MLM Help Desk as a blog. Our goal is to allow a safe environment where people on both sides of an issue can have their voice heard. Sure we sometimes come down on one side or the other of an issue, when it violates our personal values and ethics. But that has never stopped us from allowing both sides to be heard.
We will continue to stand on our First Amendment Right, and fight for the rights of those who post on this blog.
My question is why is Global Verge so concerned with what Chris Greco has publicaly stated and published at ActivationKingWireless.com
Maybe it is because ALL of the emails Global Verge sent over the last few days are not completely true and accurate.
Look I think most common sense folks fully understand this is one of the most bazaar situations in the history of Direct Selling, MLM, Telecommunications and the Wireless wars. And only a court of law will finally decide who stands responsible for the outcome.
Hope this clears up a little of the emails Ted Robbins sent out. And if be some chance we are contacted by an Attorney, I can assure all of those who have commented that it will take an act of a Federal Court to get us to remove any of your comments or our posts.
