Posture Pro Lawsuit Looming

Posture Pro posture analysis engineer Dr. Joseph Ventura may be slapped with a patent infringement lawsuit or countersued with a patent infringement lawsuit depending on who files first. Chris Geisert, patent holder of the famous Posture Pal cushion, sent a warning letter to Dr. Ventura regarding his patent rights. Dr. Ventura was receiving a royalty payment from Posture Pal for use of his science and marketing to his clients who use his Posture Pro software worldwide until the company became defunct and was receiving royalty payments from Bernard Brown who is facing fraud and patent infringement complaints filed with the US Northern District Court of Texas. Geisert sent a letter to Dr. Ventura giving 3 choices on how he could act regarding Posture Pal. The first choice was that he could continue to help Posture Pal market the cushion and no longer receive royalties while he markets for Posture Pal. Patent belonging to Chris Geisert, not Posture Pal meant that Dr. Ventura could be prosecuted for patent infringement. Documents of the forfeited Posture Pal companies and the official USPTO website showing Geisert as current patent owner was shown to Dr. Ventura. The second choice was that Dr. Ventura could take down his science regarding Posture Pal and not help either party while still collecting royalties from both parties until the court case was settled, staying neutral. The third choice given to Dr. Ventura was the option to help Geisert market his invention. Dr. Ventura chose the first choice, to continue marketing and helping Posture Pal sell knowing the fact that Posture Pal had a patent infringement and fraud lawsuit against Bernard Brown the acting CEO who forfeited the company and was selling product without company representation. Now that the Posture Pal is no longer sold, Dr. Ventura is demanding payment from Geisert for the products he has sold and is threatening a lawsuit. Geisert has offered countless times to start paying Dr. Ventura royalties now that he is no longer marketing Posture Pal, but Dr. Ventura demands royalty payments for cushions sold while Geisert wasn't useing Posture Pro marketing materials and was helping a defunct company CEO who was being litigated for fraud and patent infringement. The continued argument could lead to lawsuits from both sides being filed; one for not paying royalties and the other for patent infringement. While Geisert has offered to start paying royalties on current merchandise sold in return for marketing, the main hang up for both parties are the cushions that were sold while Dr. Ventura was infringing upon Geisert's patent.

I told Ventura I would not pay him royalties while he was infringing upon my patent.

After he stopped infringing, I was glad to start paying him roylaties. Our differences can only be settled by arbitration/court.

Chris Geisert owes me money for cushions he has sold. He admits he does not have a copy of our agreement, yet is making claims that I violated that agreement. I welcome a lawsuit so I can expose these allegation by Geisert for what they are.

Posture Pro Royalties Stop Due to Patent Infringement

Posture Pro software engineer Dr. Joseph Ventura's royalty agreement regarding Posture Pal/FHP Cushion has now ended due to patent infringement violations against Dr. Ventura. Inventor Chris Geisert sent Dr. Joseph Ventura a warning letter regarding marketing and receiving royalties of the patented Posture Pal belonging to Geisert, giving him 3 options of what he could do. The first option was continue marketing Posture Pal for Bernard Brown who has a fraud and patent infringement lawsuit against him and receive no royalties sold of the FHP Cushion. The second option was to become a neutral party and receive royalties from both parties until the court case ended. The third option was to support FHP Products FHP Cushion. Posture Pro inventor, Dr. Ventura chose to continue marketing for Bernard Brown and not support Geisert which stopped Geisert from paying royalties for the science Ventura offered. Geisert continued to sell without using Ventura's science or marketing. Now that the FHP Cushion is selling and Posture Pal is not selling, Ventura is demanding royalties even though he chose to market for Bernard Brown who had a patent infringement and fraud lawsuit. Geisert offered to start paying royalties now that Ventura stopped promoting Posture Pal but Ventura demands royalties of cushions sold even when he was against Geisert. Geisert and Dr. Ventura are at a stalemate and will probably not settle without arbitration or going to court.

Ventura was given 3 choices.

1. continue to market for other companies who were infringing upon my patent and not receive royalties from me.

2. become a nuetral party, take down your marketing for both parties and receive royalties from both parties

3. support geisert who had the agreement with and receive his royalties.

ventura chose to support the other company.

I offered to start paying him his royalties after he stopped infringing upon my patent but that wasn't good enough.

By the way, if Geisert is claiming he is not using my science in his FHP cushion, then he is admitting he is not using my design. The design I made for him that made Posture Pal effective.

So, is he saying the FHP is less effective? Appears so.

Chris Geisert is making wild and unsubstantiated allegations regarding my signed agreement with him and a separate agreement with Bernard Brown. Chris recently admitted he did not have a copy of my agreement with him. If he did he would know he cannot stop paying me just bacause he makes things up.
