From Geoff's facebook:

$1,000,000 crowd funder anyone?
Frank Gapinski and myself with my beautiful daughter Latifa on location in Morocco for me it is all about helping save the world and the greater good we can do.
Unfortunately for Frank and now he wants me to pay him a $1,000,000 to release the footage from our filming in Jordan, Morocco, and England.
That is RIGHT one million Australian Dollars for footage that could help so many people in the world.
I have put all my money back into helping the world with permaculture, I have more debt now than ever before in my life, and I do not care I just want to help the world.
Be careful who you trust because some people just want to feather their own nests and live in luxury beachside houses and invest the money they make out of all your years of hard work while they invest in major unethical supermarkets.
We will survive, what does not kill you makes you stronger.
Frank has locked me out of www.geofflawton.com and all our videos there so go over to www.geofflawtononline.com where we have a new stronger system for helping the world and we are only working with ethical people.


Guys just to let you know this has all been going on for 6 months when I resigned from my business relationship with Frank and Jane Gapinski. I have tried to be as reasonable as possible and asked to finish the business and even asked for a third party liquidation so that both parties walk away with something clean and fair, but they simply ignored every request, so they can try and stalemate the process to try get there $1,000,000 dream pay out.



So it looks like Gapinski has his name on the domain, even though the registrant organization is geoff lawton PTY.LTD.

This actually happened already to permaculturenews.com! Geoff got the domain back somehow. But this time there seems to be a lot of content being held hostage, so it might be more complex.

From EcoFilms Australia's facebook:

Of course there is another side to the story. We've worked with Geoff for 15 years and its a very sad outcome. We have nothing to hide but debating it on social media we don't think is appropriate and we're leaving it to our lawyers. Thank you.

Sorry to hear about a conflict. I hope the lawyers are able to bring things to a conclusion.
