John T Unger is being SUED by the company that ripped off HIS designs!!!! It beggars belief but something similar happened to me a few years back so I know pretty much how he feels right now. In my case it was theft of my original idea whereas with him it's actually his designs for his entire range of products. In his case, he may have to give up his hard fought for business altogether if this company wins in court. Even if we can't help him financially we should all give him our support as it could happen to any one of us.
