Some Money Raising Campaigns Have Gone Viral

What is Crowdfunding? Wikipedia defines Crowdfunding as "The practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. Crowdfunding is a form of crowdsourcing and of alternative finance."

In 2015, it was estimated that worldwide over US$34 billion was raised this way. Litigation crowdfunding allows plaintiffs or defendants to reach out to hundreds of their peers simultaneously in a semiprivate and confidential manner to obtain funding, either seeking donations or providing a reward in return for funding - Wikipedia.

The legal sector has seen a steady increase in 3rd party funding over the last few years, where websites are promoting the use of litigation crowdfunding, where hundreds or even 10's of thousands of people can assist with legal dispute costs, either by investing in a case in return for part of a contingent fee, or offering funding donations to support a legal right that they believe in.

It is possible to raise capital to cover legal costs for criminal defense, custody fights, civil rights lawsuits etc., particularly if enough people provide donations to your crowdfund campaign, your case involves controversial issues, or a possible court ruling that may affect many people who may see themselves facing the same, or similar circumstances, at some time.

If a possible ruling or decision may negatively affect the high finance online tech world, including popular websites, or the Internet in general, then the chances of you receiving major funds from big players to support your battle, or legal defense, may increase significantly!
