Advocate posted this comment on my blog post about the H&K / ATI lawsuit …
I really think its important to remember that they sued over trademark and trade dress infringement … not patent infringement. Very different things.
Add to that the fact that ATI openly claimed it to be a MP5 lookalike:
Add to that the fact that HK can absolutely smother them in legal fees and you have a no win situation for ATI.
Love them or hate them i feel HK had the legal right to pursue this course.
… i’m just glad i got my gsg-5 long ago
I had forgotten about that advertisement.
