Survival of the fitest leads to mobs and opressive states. That's why you have to balance the system so when you say cutthroat competition you don't mean literally. In economics there are mathematical formulas for what's the optimum system. But there's something called lobby and corruption. So they will do whatever is best for those that pay.

Thumbs down Corporate America

since the beginning of this glorious country people have stolen ideas from other people, reinvented them, improved and constructed. its no coincidence that this goes on in our favourite sport. what's sad is when a company that has grown and flourished on ideas that were "stolen" (yes the autococker was taken and improved on from original designs) willingly thwarts other attempts to improve. a patent is one thing, but when the company has nothing... NOTHING, and makes threats to another simply because they themselves are threatened, you only see the true face of the people behind it. all this does is open the door for monopolizing. some of you say "it wont affect us" and "it's just business." if the wright brothers had patented the way they made airplanes after they got it off the ground and left no room for improvement.. that would have affected us greatly. this analogy might go over some of your heads.. but think about paintballing 5 years or 10 years down the line, with everyone sueing everyone else for having a shaped trigger or grip frame. WE WOULD ALL HAVE THE SAME MARKER!!!

give the guy a break, hes only trying to protect his company. he already put a patent on the things he made, icd and them have no right to steal his ideas. face it, no company only makes gun to imrove on the sport. it might be a factor but the money is what every company cares about most.

Ah but many would say that Bud Orr "stole" the ideas that made his autococker work from Glenn Palmer.

He did not invent the autococker.

ICD? This is about AM and WGP. I don't know of any ICD autocockers/sniper type pump guns.


I don't know much about all this. It was supposed to be a trade-dress lawsuit right? Because illusions have the same backblock cocking system as snipers?
