Stop unfair legal action to take Lost Dog Coffee's name and website.

Lost Dog Coffee is a wonderful business with great coffee and art. It has been a cultural center for Shepherdstown for over fifteen years. With a website and Facebook page, Lost Dog Coffee has an online presence. Unfortunately a chain restaurant from Virginia, has sicced its lawyers to steal LostDogCoffee.com, even though it has its own appropriate domain, LostDogCafe.com.

Please support the right for a local business that has been recognized by magazines and locals and visitors as a treasure to keep its name and online presence. 

A website in support of this petition and campaign to protect Lost Dog Coffee has been set up at http://www.lostdogcoffee.us/

You will find additional ways to help and see the letter from the lawyers of the chain restaurant.
