VIRGINIC employees bravely stand up to Virgin invading their privacy and daily screenshooting their social media and Linkedin profiles


“There comes a point when you have to stand up to behavior of ruthless lawyers, because they destroy others. Bullying like this silences people but we all know this is not an acceptable practice.”

Last week Virgin (https://www.virgin.com/) launched a new attack on shocked VIRGINIC (https://virginic.com/) employees and threatened in Court to serve them lawsuits directly to their Linkedin profiles. Virgin then followed its threats and served its lawsuits to unrelated email addresses of those individuals it found on the internet. Virgin revealed it has been spying on VIRGINIC employees social media and private Linkedin profiles and provided the Court daily screenshots of such profiles as evidence. Thomas M Monagan from Norvell IP is the lawyer hired by Virgin in USA, together with Geoff Hussey from A.A. Thornton in UK to tear apart the business fabric of VIRGINIC and force the start up to stop selling its allergy-free organic creams.

According to Mark Russell, a former employee of VIRGINC: “The harassment Virgin lawyers have been maliciously applying for the past 2 years have adversely and financially affected many workers employed who lost their jobs because of the hardship caused by Virgin. Virgin has been trying to starve a small start up company financially to death for past 2 years and it’s a miracle VIRGINIC is still standing up straight by pure force of business strength and integrity.”

He adds: “Virgin opened multiple lawsuits in multiple countries and demanded we close, hand them our website, destroy the products and commit a business suicide. VIRGINIC heroically stood up to it.

All employees gave their 200% knowing it costs a fortune to hire lawyers in all those countries and a lot of us declared to work for reduced wage to support our mission-based company and stand up to bullying. Everyone with common sense knew Virgin’s claims were not only lacking factual merits but were in line of a long history of Virgin destroying through litigation (https://money.cnn.com/2005/06/29/news/newsmakers/branson_suit/index.htm) many other start ups in the past including small Virgin Olive Oil producers (https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20150501/06032130844/virgingroup-disputes-trademark-application-tiny-olive-oil-companyvasse-virgin-because-course-they-did.shtml).”

Question remains, should Virgin and its lawyers be held liable for damages they have caused including loss of jobs of VIRGINIC employees and financial hardships caused to many families?

VIRGINIC is defending its case vigorously with the limited means it has but the irony is, what wrong did they do at the first place. VIRGINIC is an honest, cruelty-free and natural-ingredients-only beauty company. The name is different from Virgin. They sell entirely different products. Their logo and branding is different.

Customers buying VIRGINIC organic face cream jars online are certainly not confused thinking they are buying from Virgin Airlines/Mobile or Virgin Galactic.

Nevertheless VIRGINIC workers who lost their jobs due to high costs of multiple international lawsuits and whose private social media profiles are daily watched and taken screenshots of, are the ones to shoulder the burden. At the event of US Court eventually ruling for VIRGINIC, will the multi-billion dollar giant Virgin be ordered to compensate those employees for loss of income and privacy invasion?

He adds: “There comes a point when you have to stand up to behavior of ruthless lawyers, because they destroy people and they destroy lives, just because there is a company with deep pockets willing to pay for it. Bullying like this scares and silences people but we all know this is not an acceptable practice. There needs to be accountability for false and malicious storytelling in courts and daily spying on private profiles and hiring private investigators to find out where those employees live, which is also what Virgin said in Court they did and presented those private investigators endings to Court as evidence. Virgin’s infamous and low litigation and personal harassment tactics are now a part of a public record so everything is out there to be seen and accounted for.”

A former employee who fell victim to this case, finishes by saying: “There is a human cost to this malicious bullying. VIRGINIC has continued to put on a brave face and has been boldly fighting back for the past two years, but I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been to many VIRGINIC employees. They lost their jobs, their privacy was violated. The multi-billion dollar giant attacked a small start up because they can and because lawyers had to justify their fees. All this at the direct expense of many hard working young people, their family income and the better mission-based future they have been building.”

The case progresses and it is unclear how quickly the Court might rule.

New Survey Reveals 22.5% of Brits Admit to Having A One-Night Stand Despite Coronavirus Outbreak


London, Mar 27 – COVID-19 may have been declared a severe public health risk but the coronavirus outbreak has not deterred Brits hooking up for a night of passion with a stranger

Hookup Dating website, Shagbook, surveyed 1,000 random UK citizens, and almost a quarter of the respondents surveyed admitted to arranging a sex hook-up since the breakout of Coronavirus in the UK.

The independently commissioned survey also gave an insight into the UK’s attitude towards sex with 24.3% of people admitting to having had casual sex with someone they have just met, and 29% of married partners admitted to having a one-night stand.

Shagbook is a sex hook up dating website that enables singles and married partners to meet up for casual, no-strings-attached sex. With UK pubs closing their doors and millions opting for self-isolation, sex and dating will become a tricky issue in the coming months. Social distancing proclamations should be considered when engaging in risky behaviour.

A representative from Shagbook said “We can’t stop the UK population arranging to meet for sexual encounters, but we do urge people to be responsible and think of the well-being of others. If you show any signs of coronavirus, even if it’s only a common cold, do not put others at risk. Over the course of the coming weeks, Shagbook will include website information to ensure that this message is understood. We will also be promoting our live cams for those looking for 100% safe, sexy fun.”

Shagbook.com is a popular British sex hook up dating site. The independent survey was commissioned prior to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordering a nationwide lockdown on Monday, March 23.

A stand out partnership – PR Fire


Today Bouncepad, the inventors of the tablet kiosk, and Sign In App, visitor management app creators, announced the release of a new collaboration; Sign In App Tap.  Sign In App Tap is an RFID reader that connects seamlessly to Bouncepad’s stylish enclosures and integrates to Sign In App; meaning visitors and staff can simply connect and  check-in with their existing door access cards and fobs.

Dan Harding, Managing Director at Sign In App commented, “The team is so pleased with  the release of Sign In App Tap. We have been testing concepts for a few years now and in collaboration with Bouncepad, we have finally come up with the perfect solution.”

Bouncepad is at the forefront of the enclosure industry, working with other organisations such as McDonalds to design and innovate new products and solutions. Joss Barton, Head of Operations at Bouncepad, welcomed the collaboration saying, “Sign In App has been a long-standing customer of ours. We’ve fulfilled over 1000 orders around the world for them, so when they approached us to work on a new product, we were really enthusiastic. We have lots of experience in product design with our in-house team, our ability to make prototypes through 3D printing and our experience in the mobile enclosure space. I feel we have worked together to produce a fantastic final product.”

Both companies are excited about where the collaboration will take the already successful partnership. Speaking of the opportunity, Dan said: “We have been working with Bouncepad since the beginning and we’ve never paired another enclosure with our hardware
packages.”

“For some time now, our clients have been requesting that we connect their door access cards and fobs. Until we could get to a solution that was simple for our customers to work with, reading almost all of the door access technologies, we wouldn’t be happy.”

“Working with Bouncepad meant we could deliver something that looks great, whilst still making it possible for the whole solution to be set up and installed in less than 30 minutes.”
