MyFax Sponsors Pro Bono Net’s Legal Programs
for Low-Income People



Ottawa (September 22, 2009) – MyFax, the world’s fastest-growing Internet fax service, today announced its sponsorship of Pro Bono Net, the nonprofit organization that offers online tools to legal aid and pro bono attorneys, and provides critical legal information and assistance directly to the public.


“For years, legal professionals have relied on MyFax to securely transmit sensitive documents, while enhancing mobility, productivity and efficiency,” said Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus, the provider of MyFax. MyFax is excited to support Pro Bono Net’s efforts.”


MyFax allows law professionals and their clients to send, receive, store or forward faxes securely without fax machines, dedicated fax/phone lines, long distance phone charges or fax modems. Subscribers can access their fax communications from anywhere, the same way they access their e-mail. Faxes can be received as PDF’s and users have unlimited storage of faxes online.


In addition to its flagship service, MyFax also offers a free service for users who need to send an occasional fax.  MyFax Free allows users to transmit two faxes per day of up to 10 pages without setting up an account or providing a credit card number.


“Too many people right now are facing serious problems -- foreclosure, eviction, denial of benefits, domestic violence – without being able to afford legal assistance,” said Mark O’Brien, Executive Director of Pro Bono Net.  “The commitment of MyFax and our other corporate sponsors helps us continue to empower those who serve to make a difference, and those in need, to improve their lives.”
