IMO, Kee buying SPs intellectual property is a good thing. Not that I'm a sac hugger, but they seem to try to develop good products and good business. In my mind there is a huge difference between buying out a company and suing them out of business.

As far as a hostile takeover of ICDO, I doubt that they have the stomach for that fight.

because this came from left field, no one expected this, and it doesn't make any sense. what would Kee do with the owning "intellectual patents"? either they are keeping SP down for good, so the Gardners can't come back and try to sue to get what they think is the "worth", to let people use the patents, the come back and sue them for patent infringement, or Kee wishes to possibly use the SP stuff for their own purposes.

only time will tell.

IMO, Kee did it to have the patents instead of someone else. Sometimes it's worth paying once for something than risk having to pay every time if someone else bought them. I figured either kee or dye would end up purchasing them to keep from having to pay liscensing fees in the future. I would not be suprised if they just sit on them until they expire. That would be the best thing for the industry as a whole.

I doubt that any of the people that SP sued will be making markers again anytime soon.

Wait...aren't the GoG guns pretty much the same thing smart parts had before? So won't they be using Kee's property and Kee could sue the Gardners? That would be a nice change...

correct, but i think they all have the same internals. Is that right? If so, unless the Gardners worked something out w/ Kee, there will be problems

*80% sure there the same... could have changed a few things to make it not completely SP.
