FYI check the link below for an interesting discussion on invalidating patents. I'm not speculating of course, but finding legal recourse and learning about this unwieldy patent system is pretty neat. Microsoft is trying to get out of a $290M judgement and injunction request. A lot of companies are teaming up in support of MS. I don't mean to stir up arguments of whether this would happen in the snowboard industry - and I really don't care as long as they keep making boards.

I think it was actually Tracey. I have a photo of Mike Olson talking to NS in the NS booth at SIA. I'll have to dig it up.
Interesting. Then you will have evidence that NS lied about something... this is getting really interesting now... well not the patent thing. The war between these two haha.

Who wants to see Burton get in on this and claim that the Flying-V was in the works long before Mervin and NS's tech???

I'd rather they just drop it and let sleeping dogs lie myself.

It was definitely the lawyers that contacted Neversummer. They got a cease and desist. Owners don't have those served. As far as Tim and Mike talking, it could of happened. The interview was from Tracey's perspective.

Seems like they should agree not to contest any patents and charge each other one pizza for every thousand boards sold.
Does Never Summer charge pizza rates for MTX?
