    I have a bigger problem with hudge "co-ops" dodging liability for their own brand products than I do about companies protecting trademarks.

    Or them changing their rules to mean that their really not a "co-op" with an elected board anymore.

    ^^^List of companies they are associated with. PBR is one of them. Imagine trademarking the word ‘beer’.

    Kinda explains why Canyon bikes came into the US market so strong, they obvs has the financial backing to do it.

    What’s up mags...been awhile. Remember the good old days of buying cheap bike parts on chainlove. Ain’t what it used to be.

    Trademark infringement, and trademark disputes, happen all the time. And this one is not different at all, ski gear is no different. But saying it is no different than all the other types of infringement disputes is pretty meaningless. Because in all of those disputes, there are specific facts that either make it a justified suit for infringement or not a justified dispute. So yes, this is a run of the mill trademark infringement issue. In which one party is vastly overreaching because they have the financial resources to bully small actors. Which is a run of the mill tactic, and still an abhorrent tactic. What makes this different is simply because it's related to a topic we care about, so people are more sensitive to the reprehensible business decision made by backcountry.com

    The only question I have at this point: Is Fischer's vacuum boot line dwindling because of a failed trademark lawsuit?

    Private equity companies give no fucks. All they see is numbers. The question is will the actual core users put a dent in their sales.

    If some big names in the outdoor industry come out against them it could possibly move the dial.

    Having worked for a private equity company I don’t even know what you are saying. Can you put it terms of numbers?

    Don't know if it's necessarily a "big" name but a pretty famous outdoor photog in SLC had the article on his Facebook and wasn't happy. Clearly he knows skiers and anglers alike and is well published. Let's hope more jump on the wagon.

    Lots of pros, especially local SLC Peeps are sponsored by Backcountry.

    Whoa, they better. Pretty unclear who the Backcountry Ranger works for, sort of seems like they're a rep for the retailer who will happily provide gear advice, right?
