    Cando.com is back?

    I looked at cando.com today...apparently they are trying to go back into business. My understanding is that they did our community an injustice. They didn't give us access to the articles which Dr. Young and others on this forum submitted. They didn't post a link pointing to carecure.rutgers to redirect traffic over here. They didn't even answer my emails when I inquired about the situation.

    I don't know about the rest of us here, but I'm not going to support their business any longer.

    New owner

    The name and previous forums and posts was purchased by a new owner. He is not associated with the previous owners, but has chosen to continue to use the same name, even the same names for the forums (ie, SpinalNurse, etc.).

    It has been up for about 3 months now, but from what I have seen it has very little activity. They seem to be still in development, but nothing new has appeared in the last 2 months, and promised information and old articles, etc. have not materialized.

      Copyright?

      I remember the names of those forums from Spinewire....

      I'm curious, do you have a copyright?

          Spinwire was bought by CanDo, or merged with CanDo, so any copyrights or trademarks went with CanDo when it was sold, most likely. The current CanDo site looks like ass and has no content worth reading.

            Cando

            The old Cando site was totally owned by a corporation which owned all the posts, the name Cando, the name SpinalNurse, all the articles written by Dr. Young, etc. etc.

            For some history on the collapse of the old Cando site, see here:

            http://carecure.rutgers.edu/Cando/Cando_Update.htm

            Since that time, even though Dr. Young offered $25,000 for the rights to the old Cando site forums and articles, this offer was turned down.

            Recently the Cando.com name and site, including all the forum posts and articles were sold to someone (not sure who...you cannot get any information about who owes the site from the site although it is promised with a "teaser" page) who must have some plans for making some money off of it, but not sure how. Currently there is nothing for sale on the site, and no ads. Certainly will not make it unless they offer more to the SCI community than what is there now or many other non-moderated SCI discussion boards that already exist, most with no profit potential.

                rights to information

                Do those who posted articles, etc., have any rights if this were pursued from the perspective of intellectual property? CRF

                  Well, I haven't been there since right after it reopened, and I couldn't find anything. And for the record, I said it looked like ass. [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Anyway, I haven't been there recently, so no offense to anyone intended.
