PHIUS lawyers accuse New York Passive House of stealing PHIUS’s “trade secrets”
Lawyers representing the Passive House Institute U.S. have sent a cease-and-desist letter to a regional Passivhaus organization in New York, accusing the group of stealing PHIUS’s e-mail list. The letter includes several “demands.”
Three New York Passive House board members have issued a letter denying PHIUS’s charges. They say that the e-mail list used by New York Passive House is their own, not one stolen from PHIUS.
