Editor’s Comment05/30/2017  Ripoff Report believes in transparency and the more information the better.  In this instance, there has been court action regarding this subject Report.  We believe it important to note that not all Court Orders are alike.  Many court orders are absolutely legitimate and we make no representations about this court order situationHowever, we want our users to be aware thatsometimes courts enter orders based upon default which typically means that the defendant didn’t show up.  Sometimes a defendant won’t show up because they didn’t even get notice of the case proceedings in the first place and other times defendants may not show up because they don’t necessarily have the knowledge and/or the financial resources to fight. [continued below]....

.....  Still, in other instances, a defendant may simply appear only to stipulate (settle) the case by agreeing to stipulate to a court order because they are being bullied by the plaintiff and whether what they said was true or not, they just want the matter to go away so they can move on with life and make the plaintiff go away.  Again, we make no representations about this particular court order situation.  We are simply providing you with additional information so that you may be more informed and, coupled with any additional research you feel is necessary, may make your own informed decision regarding the validity of this Report.  As always, we encourage our readers to do their homework and not just rely on one single source for information.  Google, through the Lumen Database, has provided the following document relating to this subject Report:




Attention to all startup companies looking to work with USC/Columbia Tech Incubator, 52inc. or any of its affiliates.
Bill Kirkland (executive director of the University of South Carolina and Co-Founder/Investor of 52inc.) and both his staffs, deleted our entire original business, our contract has been breached, all production on our rebuilt app was shut down two weeks before our scheduled launch, we've been served a Fake Termination Agreement, had our IP stolen and used on another company's product, endured three additional failed deliverables plus a second breach, and been forced to go A YEAR without any incoming revenue. Despite this, not one person at the University of South Carolina or 52inc. has helped us, nor explained why this has happened to us. 
In addition to the above, they made false statements about us to try and justify their actions, and then proceeded to not only delete entire months-long correspondence between our companies, but also manipulate online documents, both in failed attempts to cover up their malicious actions.
