Not cool. I do care who copied / stole. So should you - if companies get no protection, royalties, or even recognition, there is less incentive to innovate and pour money into R&D.
I think you missed my point. Some say mervin "copied/stole" from neversummer which isnt entirely true. Mervins tech is its own with the rocker that extends past the bindings and then camber to the tips, plus the added magnetraction. Neversummer profiles have rocker between the inserts and vario cut.

Both companies respective boards have a total different feel. No one is losing royalties or recognition because an individual will buy a board according to how it rides. A lib tech attack banana feels totally different than a NS Evo even if the tech is similar.

My point is get a board for how it rides and if it fits your riding style. Dont fall into the hype of branding and good marketing.

-Its not how fast you ride...Its how you ride fast
