I have to admit that I do take some pleasure in seeing Smart Parts fail but only in the manner that pertains to th Gardner bros. We don't need to rehash why they have left a sour taste in many mouths. I am terribly angry at them for conducting their business as they have because the resulting backlash and decline of new players cost many Americans their jobs. Smart Parts did not fail for lack of product or performance. I never truely trust lawyers to begin with, let alone patent lawyers(one with a questionable history in the patent process) involved in patent disputes that they stand to benefit from. Lawsuits over paintball patents are not exactly high priority. I commend them for their desire to be American made yet I curse them for the manner in which they treated the paintball community. My two cents on the matter.
