Scared Monkeys Need Help

Dear Readers … we have a fellow blogger, Red from Scared Monkeys, who is in need of our help.

Scared is a fellow conservative blogger in arms who has been on the internet since the early 2000’s and a blog owner for many years  providing a voice for conservatives, missing persons and victims of crime. I first met Red, the owner of SM, back in 2005 when we were both basically starting out in the world of blogging.  Since then, Scared Monkeys has provided a voice for conservative values and they have helped out many behind the scenes who have been victims of crime who would not have otherwise been provided a voice… however, my friend now needs help.

If all are not familiar with RIGHTHAVEN, you should be. They are the individuals that are using copyright infringement laws as a business model to sue bloggers. They have sued nearly 300 bloggers in an attempt to get settlement money from bloggers who cannot afford legal battles. Unfortunately Scared Monkeys was one of those blogs that was wrongfully sued. For those of you not familiar with RIGHTHAVEN, I would suggest you Google them or go HERE,, to see the havoc they are causing. Everyone should worry as to what this organization is doing in the name of “copyright infringement” vs. fair use. One of the threats that are being made is the taking of a bloggers site as a so-called damage.

I am asking readers to help a fellow blogger in his time of need. The blogosphere is supposed to be a community where not only do we link, share ideas and communicate with one another in a timely manner to report news accounts, we should also band together when one of our own is in trouble and needs help.  Red has reluctantly created a Paypal donation button to help with legal fees.  Please take the time and visit Scared Monkeys and make a donation, their post on the issue can be seen below.

Just a Quick MSA, Monkey Service Announcement … Your Help is Appreciated

Thanks so much for your help in aiding a fellow conservative. Freedom of Speech is an important right and one worth fighting for. Any help that can be provided is deeply appreciated. I would hate to see Red’s voice silenced. Thank you for helping a fellow Blogger in Arms.
