Submission + - Kleargear.com found in Europe, will fight default judgement

portforward writes: Remember Kleargear.com, that company who bills unhappy customers $3,500 for publicly expressing they are unhappy? Kleargear.com claimed they were owed a substantial amount of money after a couple posted their negative experience on RipoffReport.com and then attempted to collect, severly damaging the the family's credit rating. The unlucky couple sued, and got a default judgement against Kleargear in part because no one could actually find the owners of the company. Apparently now the owners have surfaced in Paris — vowing to fight and saying:

"Our sales contract is enforceable under the laws of the United States because business transactions are exempt from First Amendment rights ... If a customer disagrees with any merchant of policies, they are free to shop elsewhere."

Especially, of course, when the company adds conditions to the bill of sale after the sale is complete.
