    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    @Lonestar if only that were the case if *IF* gibson win, and Dean cannot appeal, then they set the precedent they can take on the next 3 companies - if they win that, then another factor of 3 because they can use the original ruling to force the IP they claim onto other, similar designs...

    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    @SemiCullen indeed and the court they have selected is known to be sympathetic towards claimants i know the C&D first happened during Henry's era, but - FFS - Gibson are making themselves a potential pariah; profitable but deeply disliked

    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    Dean and Hamer have been making "gibson copies" for over 40 years the time to cease and desist was 1978 fender did the same and found that the generic nature of their product made their suit ineligible if Gibson win, its a precedent - and a bad one at that, not just for guitars

    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    @SemiCullen i agree to an extent "confusion" needs to be defined if it means they want a gibson, but can't afford it that might be valid. if they are buying a Dean knowing its a Dean, then "confusion" is in the eye of the beholder. not the purchaser this leads to another issue - if Gibson...

    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    @Chu ABITW solo was the goldtop straight into the desk, then re-amped through a hiwatt there is an overbend near the start of the solo; the shorter gibson scale masde that bend easy - when he plays it live on a strat, he'll sometimes augment his left hand bend with a yank on the whammy bar to...

    @Strigidae all you have explained is you are a disagreeable person with little practical knowledge and incapable of understanding the most simple facts if you had no ML1 or Marshall, you might have a point. the fact is, you have and you don't btw - Cognitive Dissonance

    and then it was overturned on appeal. and samsung counter sued. and a pair of tech goliaths ended up paying lawyers a lot of money to finish pretty much where they started. but at least their sue/ counter sue was after a couple of weeks/ months, not 60 years too late circumstance would suggest...

    Gibson's shooting themselves in the foot again

    @Lonestar gibson appear to be doing what Apple did a few years ago - they could not stop people buying similar phones, so used the american court system to disrupt their competition and prevent sales not only did it not work out the way they'd hoped, it revealed quite how much Apple had...
