Does that mean SmartParts themselves can no longer reprogram their boards after they're initially programmed?

guys if you think about it, paintball would take a huge hit if sp went under. I dont support them, but you have to addmit they have a huge part in the sport/industry. Think of how many teams would loose major sponsorships. And without those sponsorships, they are gunna have a hard time playin. So you could probably bet the NXL would have been in a **** load of trouble if sp went under(not that I'd mind. not a fan of the nxl). I know we would have all liked to see smart parts get screwed over and go out of business, but it would affect the sport alot more than most you guys are realizing.

Jack Bauer once went into a bar, and asked for a 'Jack Bauer'. He received three shots of Jack Daniel's, a shot of kerosene and four shots of tequila mixed. When seeing this, another man approached the bar and asked for a Jack Bauer. He got a 9mm round to the face.

Why would that matter? If a company is practcing bad business ethics should it matter if they screwed directly or indirectly?

The other people who had to pay higher prices on guns because Smart Parts made the other companies pay royalties. Smart Parts has unethical business qualities, THAT'S why everyone hates them.

Tom Kaye invented nitro, or at least made it widely used. I *BELIEVE* he holds the patent on it. It's either Tom Kaye or the Tippmann guy, I honestly can't remember. Anyways, they don't enforce it because IT FURTHERS THE SPORT. If SP would have realized this, they wouldn't have been such cock jockeys and sued everyone.

I guess maybe I shouldhave said screwed or not. But getting indirectly screwed would involve a lot of ifs but here it goes. If SP goes on a law suit rampage and starts to eliminate anyone who is in violation to their pattent then you go to buy a paint ball gun. Well thanks to their rampage you have about 4-5 total choices of guns. That would be the indirect.

Im sure that other companies would be quick to sponsor those in need.

NPS (+BobLong) , Dye, Powerlyte, etc etc

Don't have to be an owner of any of those companies to hate something someone has done.

The only SP thing i own is my Freak. But I don't hate nor like SP.

It's all in legalities. We are lucky to have SP, wanna know why? Because they did something with their patents. They made good guns. We are lucky that some other cheezy company did patent everything that SP has patented(sp).

Can you imagine if some other crappy company put patents on this stuff and then sat on it and didn't sell it to other companies? There would be a major slow down in progress. If SP wouldn't have done what they did, some other company would have, and we all should be so lucky that it is SP.
