The Gardners are very smart businessmen. This happens every day in other businesses, but you don't know about it, and it doesn't seem to bother you since you don't know about it.

The patent laws are made to protect what they own, and thats what they are doing.

This isnt about the gardners being smart business men, or the fact that in the past SP seemed sue happy, this is the entire paintball industry against national. SP is the only company with the balls and the cash to go up against a powerhouse like NPS. NPS is hurting the industry, SP is simply taking care of the issue.

It was in 2002ish I think. Maybe alittle bit into 2003. All I know is that it was back when I still played.

And, what is so bad about NPS? I really don't know, I haven't been following anything lately.

They failed to pay procaps which lead to procaps leaving and creating a sub company called DXS. This company began producing products that ROCK HARD, including their pulse loader, which NPS singled out and filed a lawsuit and had court order a tempory cease in sales until DXS goes to court about it, meaning they took the longest way possible, even if they DON'T hold patents procaps is out a lot of money.

NPS has always been stealing designs and buying companies, undercutting quality and neglecting thier end of the bargins (ie PAYING the company)

Smart Parts is not the big name business in this lawsuit, even if you have no idea who KEE is. KEE owns the mini, and it is clearly in violation of automag design which court ruled to be smart parts design and also clearly in violation of spool valve design which is held jointly by dye and smartparts.

It's not only right for smartparts to sue them its kind of their responsibility to stop the theft of ideas if they can
