KEE Action Sports acquires the Intellectual Property portfolio of Smart Parts.
March 30, 2011. KEE Action Sports, LLC. announces today that it has acquired the intellectual property portfolio of Smart Parts.
KEE believes it was critical to paintball that the portfolio stayed inside the industry. KEE’s President and CEO, John Robinson, said that “KEE is committed to growing paintball participation industry-wide and that KEE intends to use the intellectual property assets in a manner consistent with that goal.”
In a letter to be sent out shortly, KEE will inform current license holders how it intends to continue to work with them under their current license arrangements.
KEE welcomes contacts from other companies interested in pursuing a partnership relating to its new IP assets.

Holy crap. It's great that it's staying within the industry, but I guess we will have to see what direction they go in. Is there any way to know what is in the entire portfolio?

If Kee is paying good money for these, bet your *** they'll be enforcing their licensing.
