TT Nut will be shutting down - on April 1st???

Postby ConducTTor » Sun Apr 01, 2012 12:10 am

Unfortunately the powers that be (manufacturer with lots money, lawyers, etc.) has given us an order to cease and desist. I am legally bound to disclose nothing and don't ask who the manufacturer is. But I guess they view this board as bad for their business. TT Nut has 30 days to pack it up and go home.

It's been a wonderful (almost) 3 years and I want to thank every single person who's on the site, who I've met because of the site and who's helped us to keep TT "dead".

Love you guys.

See you somewhere on the webs......

That is UTTER bollocks.

We need to coordinate a new place to get together.

If possible, save the discussions.

I'm sending you a PM.

Well, I'll voice this in public, why not.

Whoever this manufacturer is, they're probably well aware of what a body blow this would be to North American TT - and are hoping to achieve just that.

My gut feeling is it's an empty threat - they're just trying to scare you into shutting down for their own benefit. They can't really legally do anything against an open forum, we're not violating any copyrights or trademarks.

Your call what you do though, of course.

Or, send them an email: "We're not violating any of your copyrights or trademarks, so you can stuff it."

Sorry for the multiple posts, but rubbish like this - a corporation flexing its muscles against individuals/private groups - REALLY gets me livid.

The more I think about it, the more certain I'm getting that they REALLY don't have anything to stand on and are just trying to scare you/us into going away.

(EDIT: Wait... they told you you can't say who they are? That REALLY strikes me as dodgy, and that they know they don't really have a grounds. Unless I'm missing some key piece of information, but I doubt that. In your place, I'd tell them what to go do with themselves.)
