Marker being sued for patent infringement on Kingpin

The article alleges says that the Kingpin has been withdrawn from sale (good job I've got plenty in stock wink) but I'm awaiting confirmation from Marker about that. The Kingpin has been pulled from the Markerusa.com website as stated in the article but it's still listed on their european Marker.net website.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Reading the article and the lawsuit it sounds as if it might be a US only patent so Marker can probably sell it elsewhere in the world.

Yep, I've just had that confirmed by Marker that it's a US only situation.

They probably end up paying a licencing fee etc.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

worth paying a licence fee rather than give up your defacto position as the new "owner" of that segment of the market.
