Kayak Stripes

Richard, the founder of Scandinavian kayak company Point 65 runs a very interesting blog. He is one of the few outdoor industry owners who runs their own blog and he always brings an interesting perspective of life on his side of the desk.

Today he posted an interesting article that you should read. To summarize, it seems that a small Swedish kayak manufacture is threatening to sue another kayak importer because the stripe on their kayaks are too similar.

He doesn't name any names but you can read into it and probably hazard a good guess.

Of course every issue has two sides of the story so if anybody knows more details on this burning issue, I would love to hear it.
