    I'm reminded of a kid in the neighborhood I grew up in. He really didn't have much to say, mostly because he didn't really comprehend much of what was going on around him. He was a nice kid, and quite happy all the time. Whenever something happened that was beyond his intellectual skills to develop a response to, he mostly just chuckled.

    All true but so is the inverse: Gibson could put a lot of people out of work trying to do the same.

    Gibson is showing more concern for it’s honor; bottom line; exclusivity; than it’s employees, arguably.

    Excellent point. Unfortunately that’s the way most big companies operate. I just don’t get the vehement hate that some people have against certain music companies. I can see wanting a company like Echo Park or Vertex to close down. They have done real harm to their customers. But with a company like Gibson (or PRS, Gretsch, Fender, Ibanez, Dean, Reverend, Schecter, Music Man, Charvel, Jackson, etc.) if you don’t like their guitars or the way they do business you can simply take your money elsewhere. They’re just guitars, and some people take this stuff way too seriously.

    The patents expired long did they not? There is no patent issue if they are expired

    You calling it "faux" doesn't make it so.

    Patents are not at issue in the present threatened litigation.

    I was really against the video but I thought the response they offered (a little late) was much better and should have been how they started.

    At this point I agree, I don’t understand.

    Humans just love to have conflicts I guess. Over little things; over big things; over everything.

    That exists only each’s own head.

    I’m as guilty as anyone of seeking conflicts but I’m feeling much better now.

    I’m getting good at letting it go.

    Actually, no. This is a fact for good storytelling. Feel free to google. :)

    When the $hit hits the fan, that's when it gets good.

    ...and to think all these years, Michael has been playing a "counterfeit" Flying V. Someone needs to inform him immediately. :facepalm

    You know, you could be right, but I see an awful lot of teenyboppers wearing Zeppelin t shirts even now, and they don’t look ironic in the least.
