: I bought 25 websites from a multilevel marketer, hoping to use some and sell some. Sites were "free" for all time. Four sites were activated before the company went BK. Assets were apparently bought by some successor. The sites are still up on the web, but I no longer have access. Successor tried to sign me up for a monthly fee, and I declined. It has been a year, but the sites are still up. I want access and use of my sites. Do I have a cause of action? Also, they are running their ads on my sites, but they won't even update my area codes. I think I am like a owner of a BK condominium. I own the land.
Dear Mr. Preston,
It's people like you that inspired Elaine's Workshop (sm).
