In a message dated 98-11-05 14:15:14 EST, you write:

<< I wonder what an honest, objective survey of a random large number of
ISC clients would reveal as to their opinion of whether or not they have
been scammed - - regardless of its dictionary definition. >>


Jack,

Truth is a defense to allegations of defamation.  Does anybody here really
thing ISC could succeed in a defamtion lawsuit?  The case would never be tried
- too many witnesses to support the defense of truth.

>I have already forwarded his letter to many other newsgroups, Ron, why
don't you do the same, it may just cramp his style a bit!

I have been too busy passing Mr. Berger's story on to my media contacts to
address newsgroups yet.  But I will get around to it eventually.

I know you have a few media contacts of your own, how about pitching an
exposť about invention promotion companies to your contacts?

It is important that anyone who receives a threatening letter from invention
promotion firms post those letters to the forum.  If you have the ability it
would be best to OCR the document.  If you do not have OCR then duplicate
the letter on a word processor.

I will then create a web page for each offending company.  Potential clients
can then evaluate the merits or lack of merit for themselves, based on .

My first reaction to this threat was to allow Mr. Berger a chance to fold
and leave our game.  But after reconsideration, I now believe we should
immediately pursue journalists.  For that reason I informed the society of
Professional journalists of the current situation.

Mr. Berger's letter to Pal and conversations with FTC staff make me think
that  Mr. Berger needs an attitude adjustment.  It is my assessment that we
need to collectively tackle Mr. Berger.  If Mr. Berger has an once of good
judgment he will retire from this business.

I have a number of neat TV exposť show contacts.  I would like a show of
hands on who feels we should collectively ask these shows to look into Mr.
Berger's activities. I will contact Mr. Nader, asking for his support.

I am dropping all other activities today to systematically contact all my
media sources.  I ask that others who have media contacts do the same.

If Mr. Berger escalates this matter further it is my intention to bring this
issue to the attention of both the Nobel laureates and National Inventors
Hall of Fame inductees who helped inventors defeat H.R.400/S.507, with the
intent of them helping to get media attention in regards to questionable
invention promotion companies.  I would also ask former patent
commissioners, the PTO, and other interested parties to join in a concerted
effort to reign in companies like ISC.

Specifically, if there is a legal way to do so, I believe that as a group we
should ask TV and radio stations to stop accepting these companies ads.  If
that is not feasible we should ask those media outlets to run public service
announcements detailing the characteristics of fraudulent invention
promoters.

Since Mr. Berger has raised his ugly head on our turf, I believe we should
give his operation special consideration during this campaign.

Ron,

>I nearly always agree with you, but in this case I think we should let
the fox out of the chicken coop long enough to be thoroughly exposed to
the invention community.

There is nothing I hate more than admitting I am wrong, but I was in this
case.  Savor the moment because I try to avoid such admissions.

I have spent all day networking with the inventor community and contacting
media.  It seems that Mr. Berger has also been trying intimidate Joanne
Hayes-Rines.

Also, I have highlighted all the references to Mr. Berger and his associates
in RED on my caution page www.rjriley.com/caution/ ,  to allow readers to
more easily identify the related parties.
