Gather and MPR feed attorneys

Last summer, having spent the last 4 months working like crazy to design a website and a business model that would justify our existence to our investors and ourselves, we were slapped with the first Cease and Desist letter from our friends at is owned by Minnesota Public Radio (MPR). We replied to the letter. They sent another one. After each one we thought, “Can they actually be serious about this?”

Yes indeed, they are serious. They have a team of fancy lawyers, a big bank account and really, really want to spend their investor's money on silly lawsuits. For us this is a collosal waste of time and money. Even though it is an unwelcome distraction -- In no way does it affect our commitment to the activist community.
