Intertainment Media Inc. announced yesterday that the Company has filed a claim in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against John Doe No. 1, aka MaydayMalone, John Doe No. 2, aka f3drivr, and John Doe No. 3, aka CESpumper (“Defendants”) who have posted false, malicious and defamatory comments (“Posts”) on the Stockhouse website.
Intertainment is claiming general and punitive damages and seeking an injunction consequent to the following matters:
- Each of the Posts was known by the responsible Defendant to be false, or was made recklessly, without regard to whether it was true or false
- Each of the Posts was made by the responsible Defendant with malice, spite and ill will and was calculated to disparage Intertainment and Intertainment’s chosen business, to damage Intertainment’s reputation in the community, and to lower Intertainment in the minds of right thinking members of society, and did have these intended effects
- Each of the Posts was published in the form known by the responsible Defendant to be visited by persons with a financial interest in Intertainment
“The Company is adamant that it will defend itself and the rights of its stakeholders and will not let the defamatory actions of those that hide behind anonymity to undermine the value being built by the Company and its businesses,” said David Lucatch, CEO of Intertainment Media Inc.
The Company routinely engages in communications that are forthright and open to discussion by all parties. It regularly provides market updates and non-confidential information to educate and inform the public at large about its activities and endeavors.
The Company will continue the process to identify the persons and organizations making and supporting improper postings and will pursue further legal options.
