I need a few people who were shut down who are willing to talk to the AP.
They're going to write an article on this and go to Google for a response. Could be a big break.
PM if you're interested.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I'd prefer not to go on record with name etc. but if we have a hard time finding people willing I'd consider it.

you need to be careful because there is no way of knowing how they will report it.

Doesn't seem like anyone is willing to go on record and AP won't run a story without firsthand collaboration.

The AP rep seemed very sympathetic to the cause. He said he ordered a pixel himself without reading those terms and was shocked at their heavy handedness.

They won't agree not to publish last name?

Think they'll mind/is it unethical to use an assumed name?

They might. I'll pass along your info and see what they say.

That's a terrible idea.

You wouldn't? Not many people involved that have a firm grasp of legal issues and could speak as lucidly as you could.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

+1 if this thing blows up, (which is the intended goal here), then dealer will find himself in the news anyway

I'm surprised nobody is willing to go on record, this is your biggest opportunity to get this resolved, once the AP picks it up, it'll be everywhere.

There are people who are not on DDF who this affected. I know of one who I am sending this to to see if he'll go on record - but perhaps if the dealer sent out an email some people would come forward.

Maybe give it some time.  Some of the victims don't seem to be around.
