Techdirt's "I Invented Email" gear

Techdirt, a fearless source of excellent technology news and commentary, is being sued for $15M by Shiva Ayyadurai, who claims to have invented email — he is represented by Charles Harder, a key figure in the Gawker-killing legal campaign that Peter Thiel financed, and who is also representing Melania Trump in her $150m lawsuit against The Daily Mail.

Ayyadurai won a $750K settlement with Gawker for making fun of his claims to have invented email in 1978, eight years after Ray Tomlinson sent an email over ARPANET. Gawker was bankrupt at the time of the settlement.

Techdirt is selling "I INVENTED EMAIL" tees and hoodies for a limited time.
