2Clix sues Australian Site Whirlpool Over Forum Topic

The founder of the Australian Broadband site Whirlpool is currently under legal issued with accounting software firm 2Clix Australia Pty Ltd for alleged "injurious falsehood".

The Statement of Claim from the company alleges that Simon Wright allowed statements "relating to the Plaintiff and its software product that are both false and malicious" to be published on the Whirlpool forums.

2Clix is suing for at least $150,000 (plus costs), and is demanding that two forum threads be removed from the site.

2Clix believes that the topics on the Whirlpool forums led it to sustain "a severe downturn in monthly sales".

Members of the community website have already begun supporting Whirlpool by donating to the site to aid in the legal costs. Some of the users claim to have donated more than $1000 through Paypal.
