Call my lawyers... They are very cheap! LOL...

Because of that, CNN is requesting TRIPLE the normal damages against Haiti Live Networks.

OH YEAH... Haiti Live Networks will need a lawyer!

Who Is Haiti Live Networks

Haiti Live Networks or "HLN" is a Haitian owned company that offers live Television and Radio channels to the Haitian community around the World.

HLN provides an alternative to regular cable and satellite programming to customers who wish to stay in touch with their Haitian roots and culture.

What does that mean for Haiti Live Networks?

Well... If they survive this lawsuit, it will mean more customers

Think about it... They are not even paying me and I am telling you about their service!

Shame on CNN! Shame on Time Warner!

This is a classic case of corporate bullying.

CNN's claims are outrageous and ridiculous! If you polled CNN viewers right now and asked them what HLN means, more than half of them wouldn't know. Headline News is the name that most viewers recognize.

We can't cry "discrimination" ALL the time. Rules are meant to be respected, especially in business.

Other countries respect trademarks and such.Let us hope that "Haiti Live Networks" has good legal representatives and insurance policy, provided they did something wrong.

Haiti is an independent country.
