Everyone is chomping at the bit to figure out what THEY can do to help in this WME v. Level 1 Productions lawsuit debacle. People are talking about making a ruckus at WME events, boycotting, telling their friends and family not to support WME, and all kinds of other things. That's great, but the best thing you can do to help Level 1 is to support their movie.
Now, that being said, if you really want to hurt WME, all of these ideas flying around might work... but to make a big dent you need to go after their sponsorship. Here is a list of their film tour sponsors in the US and Canada, and their contact info. I suggest you send an email to EACH of them.
What to do is to send a brief, politely written e-mail or letter that says the reason you're emailing; for example, that they are a sponsor of Warren Miller Entertainment, and that Warren Miller Entertainment has launched a frivolous suit against Level 1 Productions, which is bad for the sport. Then explain that as long as they support WME, you will not be buying their products, and will tell your friends, family and associates to join you in this boycott.
This goes through General Mills, so you'll need to mention that Nature Valley is sponsoring WME.
Warren Miller in Canada is run through a site called "Ski The World". Its main sponsors are:
Address: P.O. Box 2500, Edmonton, AB, Canada T5J 2Z4
Corona Extra Canada
Remember, contact ALL of them.
