Prior to the case dismissal, we made the decision to provide a factual response to Xdesk. On May 13th, 2020, we covered the top five claims they made against our company in their lawsuit. The video created debunked their false allegations against BTOD. Below is the video for you to reference.
Continued Attacks on BTOD
If you’ve followed our brand, or spent time searching for reviews on BTOD, there is a good chance you’ve encountered one of Next’s attacks on BTOD. Even though our case has been dismissed in Federal Court by Judge Conley, Next Technologies continues to press the issue.
Two screenshots of the ads being ran by Xdesk.com and EvoDesk.com on Google as of 9/7/20:
In addition to the Google Ads above, Next Technologies has run multiple video ad campaigns on YouTube as well. These are the type of ads that show before and during videos you intend to watch while on YouTube. One of their ads has reached as many as 300,000 views by forcing users to watch their ads pre-video start and during the YouTube video. In total, they have created three videos on an Xdesk brand YouTube channel, with the sole purpose of attacking BTOD. The videos thumbnails are shown below:
BTOD’s Plan Moving Forward

Nonetheless, as has been our practice for years, we wanted to give you the facts and let you make up your mind for yourselves.
