  1. Thank you guys for you vote of support. I believe my attorney is completely capable of protecting my assets. But I don't know if he is aware or can be made aware of the consequences of the case regarding Home Inspectors. In this case I will probably need a couple of attorneys. Not to mention a Patent attorney. I don't know if this is the right case to try to over throw the patent. That's for attorneys to decide.
  2. On August 7, 2013 suit was filed in Lafayette County, Mississippi for patent infringement against myself and my company. My attorney and myself are very certain they intend on proceeding with the case. They seek damages for lost revenue, enhanced damages, attorneys fees, and etc. Essentially they want my business and everything I own. I am posting on this forum to raise awareness that the suit everyone has feared has begun. Why my company? I can only suppose that it's because of my proximity to their office( forty miles). My company is typical of most small business's. Just barley making enough money to pay the bills and stay alive in this trying economy. I do not use their process. I do however use infrared in home inspections. I don't pump up house in preparation for home inspection, use their software, etc.. I estimate defense of this suit will cost more than my company could possibly bear. There is no help from insurance because copyright infringement is specifically excluded. So I'm asking for help. Anyone who has connections to Flir, Fluke, Testo etc. Making them aware of this would be critical. After all, they should have fought this battle years ago. I am a member of InterNACHI and am trying to use the defense fund as this case will affect everyone in the industry. I am also seeking help from ASHI. I believe this case crosses all barriers between the two organizations. If you read online some people's estimates beating this case could well exceed 150,000 dollars. Appealing to the big guys remains the best choice. Possibly we maight be able to get some sort of defense fund set up by all three. Allowing HS to win will set a precedent that no one wants. I appreciate your time.
