Dear eMule User,
you receive this mail as a registered member of the official eMule board on
http://www.emule-project.net. This is the first newsletter and we do not send
them on a regular basis but only on rare occasions.
The reason for writing this mail is we want to bring current problems to your
attention: A german patent lawyer registered the trademark "eMule" for a dialer
related company and is now trying to shutdown or takeover major eMule related
websites. Since many of our developers as well as many webmasters live in
germany we consider this as a serious threat for the community and development.
Therefor we deceided to work together with the first attacked website (emule.de)
and go to court with the aim to remove this trademark. However beeing a
non-profit project we need your support to accomplish this.
Please visist http://www.freemule.net to view more background information, news
and ways to help us.
Your eMule Team
Sounds pretty crappy...
