Our attorney in our defense retorted that the said names, Harvoni, Sovaldi and Epclusa are known around the world for life saving medicine. Its like saying I want a Coke but the shopkeeper doesn't have a Coke but they give you Pepsi. Its a generic term that is used so common and never questioned that you want a soft drink.
Needless to say after a month of litigation with the ICANN body and Gilead Sciences attorneys that we were forced to release the ownership of two of our domains, and sovaldipriceinindia.com.
We learned a valuable lesson. We have fully dedicated all of our resources to our 1 year old site http://www.sunnypharma.org as our primary site for all folks looking for generic hepatitis C treatments. Gilead Sciences gave the license to Indian manufacturers to produce the generic versions of Harvoni, Sovaldi and Epclusa. As previously we have made these treatments available at a fraction of the cost to most people around the world. We will continue to do so. Our mission is no patient left behind.
One other very important development happened during this process. Our organization was slandered and falsely denegrated for not being the real deal. This was published in hepmag.com by Greg Jefferys. Our organization had to plead with Greg to rescind all statements of malice towards our friendly non profit, SoulofHealing.org in the US and the NGO, SunnyPharma.org in India. Greg claimed in his articles that our friend, non profit is not recognized by the US federal government. Which is 100% false. On the SoulofHealing.org website, it clearly gives the EIN, Employee Identification Number, with a link to the IRS.gov, which is the Internal Revenue Services website of the US government.
For those of you not from the US, IRS is the tax collecting arm of the US government. It has the highest standards of who and what non profit organization receives the gold standard of US federal tax exemption. SoulofHealing.org went through the 2 year rigorous process of proving to the US federal government that the services that they provide is and legally and rightfully tax exempt.
Greg Jefferys a Phd pursuant of journalism, conveniently overlooked this very important fact before throwing mud on SoulofHealing.org. He not only threw mud o SoulofHealing.org, he threw mud on SunnyPharma.org for not providing legitimate treatment. This saddened us to the core that a public figure like Greg Jefferys would write an article about our organization and our friend SoulofHealing.org. Our reply to Greg was please contact our patient referrals, our doctors and our nurses who have successfuly gone through our program with flying colors.
With all this said and done, Greg Jefferys did remove the defaming articles, however without an apology. Our plea was if you are contesting the genuiness of our organization please verify what we state. If you do not verify and continue to slander our organizations the hepatitis C communities around the world will suffer. The bottom line is patients are in need of treatment. We beg you not to distort our genuine service to help those with hepatitis C at large. It was a great feeling when Greg conceded to our motion. We want to say thank you Greg for realizing what we are doing is real and forthright.
