Yeeahhhhh. That happened quite a while ago. That's business. If it wasn't Burton it would be Nike, Reebok, or another company superpower.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

yeah i saw it was a little while ago but new to me at least. Believe me i'm glad it wasn't nike or reebok.
I think it sucks when nike just out to make a quick buck with skateboarding and snowboard stuff cause its popular.
i try to stick to brands who are in it for the long haul.
MAybe that why burton got involved to save a strugglin company.

Lib-Tech, Gnu and DC's are owned by Quiksilver, oh and Bent Metal Bindings, not that I've ever seen those! So many "core" companies are owned by big corporate ones.
