The Outcome of this Case will Impact your Life

The Case

The Federal government claims that Ross Ulbricht created and operated the web marketplace Silk Road, under the pseudonym Dread Pirate Roberts (DPR). We believe Ross is innocent. Although the indictments are serious, there is NO formal charge of violence, or intended violence.


Why this matters to You


If privacy and freedom matter to you, this case should too.  It is about much more than one young man.  This case opens up new legal territory and the  government is poised to use it to make Internet and financial law and set legal precedent.  



Depending on the outcome, more government control and intrusion could be ushered in and we will be forced to live with it.   It will set law regarding:


Internet privacy, both personal and financial

Internet autonomy

Government interference and over reach, both on and offline

Government control of commerce, finance and monetary policy.

According to Ross’ attorney, Joshua L. Dratel, “It is traditional for the government to exploit high profile cases and sensational charges to make bad law.” 

If this is allowed to happen, bad law could be ushered in and we will all be living with it.

Our Goal

·         To protect individual freedom and privacy;

·          To provide Ross with what every American citizen is promised: a fair trial. 

·         To have Ross acquitted of all charges.

We are working hard with the best legal team to defend Ross, but are up against the full force of the federal government. We are not the family of a wealthy kingpin.  We own no bitcoin.  Rather, we are regular people taking on a giant fight against a Goliath. It will take much more money than we have.

Every gift of any amount will help.  Please give what you can.

Give a little if you can. It's Christmas and Ross will be spending his in jail without his family, as he has been unfairly denied bail. Innocent until proven guilty. Please help.
