    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    no standing? Ha ha ha That's awesome! I guess if you sell the whole mess to someone else you can't sue like you still own it even if you sorta lease it back? ha ha ha... Thank you to the Class Assoc, Well done! Despite all the crap on the web you did the right thing w/class no pun intended. Thanks IPL for giving all the informed info be interested in your take on this too I think I've seen enough videos to last at least until GS sues...

    ​Maybe sock puppets are the answer. If Wes, Tillerman, Gouv could post their answers to Gannt and their videos under a sock puppet and their real comments under their regular id then those that don't want to read all that "stuff" could put the sock puppets on ignore and still see stuff that's related to the topic?

    Gouv from my post above and this is Kirby speaking "They have allowed LPE to go ahead and produce boats even though they don’t have a proper contract at this time," ​bold is mine

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    This article is interesting from 16 Sep 2011 www.sail-world.com/81938‘ Now it would appear that Laser Performance Europe doesn’t want to recognize the fact that this transfer has taken place. It is really weird because they paid the royalties to Global Sailing for two years as they were supposed to do, and then all of a sudden they stopped doing that. That action has caused issues between LPE and Global Sailing and they will have to sort it out.’ What was his response to the ILCA statement ‘Lawyers also informed us that the Kirby design patent has in fact expired.’ Kirby responded. ‘That’s total bull s--t! There never were any patents. You can't patent a sail boat design. These were contracts, legitimate contracts drawn up by lawyers and there is no suggestion that I had a patent on the boat. These were long term contracts that were renewable every so many years. No-one’s ever questioned them so I don’t know what lawyer they found that suggested this course of action. It’s crazy!’ What about the ILCA statement 'We also took legal advice the above rules changes where the only possible solution in order to promote the uninterrupted supply of class legal Laser boats' ? Kirby again ‘That’s nonsense too because the Spencers, through Global Sailing, have virtually guaranteed an uninterrupted supply. They have allowed LPE to go ahead and produce boats even though they don’t have a proper contract at this time, but in order to keep an uninterrupted supply of boats Global has allowed them to continue producing without a contract.’ The ILCA document continues 'Therefore, we are proposing to change the rule to eliminate the 'building agreement from Bruce Kirby or Bruce Kirby Inc' requirement.' Kirby was firm on that suggestion. ‘Global Sailing owns those rights

    Why did LP Europe get terminated by GS for supposed non payment of royalties but LP US kept paying royalties?

    ​As a dues paying class member I am quite happy with the class staying out of what is a legal matter between Kirby/PSA and Laser Performance. As to the legal system being broke, it might be but this case isn't evidence of it. There is no need to rush this through and I don't see either of the parties complaining that it is taking too long

    The ILCA is wrong when they say "is not a Laser", They have no authority to say that. Doesn't matter how many times they say it. What they can say is "is not a class legal Laser" and that is their job, to set the rules for class legal Lasers but they have no authority over the trade mark owner calling any boat a Laser.
