    Water pistols at dawn. Even with 2 press releases don't thing we will ever find the truth that and most people don't care.

    Why don't they just sort this out privately. If they can't work things out, then it can't be too much of a big deal to either side.

    Wow, cow fight goes press release, very apple and Samsung... Get a grip and pay what you owe, and don't punch the big fish because it's worth more than the little fish. This has to be pretty embarrassing for everyone. Reckon it's related to something outside of this incident?

    If you licence a product from someone you pay for it, it's that simple, doesn't matter what other people are doing, it's up to the company you licensed from to sort them out.

    It's just business. Which can sometimes get out if hand, both parties acting as if the other were to blame, but I'm guessing a little on both.

    And keep in mind both parties have a group of accountants and lawyers - who means 'reason' jumps out of the 10th floor window and 'this type of thing' gets a seat at the top table of both parties.

    Its not pretty. Doesnt help the customer. Exactly like Samsung and Apple (except one of those is a closed environment, hardware, tread on and destroy anyone who dares to try and make money off our stuff - company).

    Its always worth hearing both sides, but in the end, its just gossip over the fence.

    Hhmmm...Not sure on this, although it does sound as if EK is admitting to breach of contract, more or less. Even if they found competing items in the market, they agreed to pay licensing fees to AquaTuning. Sounds like maybe EK negotiated a bad contract - if it was perpetual and there were no outs...that's sort of their own fault for not having better lawyers, sorry to say.

    Sounds like there's might be some dirt on AT's side, too, though, as regards the reservoir. Too bad EK couldn't press on that to get out of what they perceived to be an unfair deal on blocks.

    Sadly, there's a lot to be said for hiring good lawyers these days. Otherwise you get shafted.
