From site:On December 9, 2004, a jury in Madison, Wisconsin, found on behalf of NPF, Ltd. in its patent infringement lawsuit against Smart Parts, Inc.. The trial began on December 6, in the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, before the Honorable John C. Shabaz.

The jury found that the asserted claims of NPF’s U.S. patent number 6,615,814 were valid. Earlier, on November 17, Judge John Shabaz found that the patent was infringed, as a matter of law, by Smart Parts’ Impulse, Shocker and Nerve markers. Following the jury trial, the court granted NPF’s motion for a permanent injunction, preventing Smart Parts from selling any infringing markers from December 9, 2004, forward. This injunction will last for the life of the patent, until October 14, 2019.

The jury verdict has reaffirmed NPF’s decision to protect its intellectual property rights. NPF has a licensing program for the technology protected by this patent, and for the technology protected by its other patents. Those manufacturers interested in incorporating reprogrammable microprocessors into their electro-pneumatic markers, or incorporating other intellectual property protected by NPF’s patents into their markers, should contact:
Jon Green of WDP, Ltd., at jgreen@wdp.tv for further information.
they can't sell any more.

That brings up an excellent point, what will dynasty/philly/miami/strange do? will SP still make shockers just for them, or will they leave SP? This should get interesting.

So al this is about is just the whole using reprogramable boards and chips? If so acording ot that statement then all SP has to do is pay WDP for the use of their technoligy and they are back in business.

The products that the online stores have are already sold. So if there is inventory left in the SP factory, THAT can't be sold.

The stuff in the National Paintball warehouse and on PBGear, etc. can be because SP already sold it.

Hahaha.

Hopefully WDP will allow all other companies to continue to make guns, and maybe pay a tiny tiny royalty or even non at all, just to show SP how much of a douche-bag they were.
