Exo hard and Geo are way better and than D-line. And I'm talking about the best runs of D-line.

But, I am not a lawyer.

yeah for sure, its probably going to be more of a "wink wink" situation from Infinite like they do when the release their discs and tell us they are "similar" to a Coyote (Anubis). They'll release something and say its "similar" to the beloved Discmania FD or something like that.

Fake news of the highest degree.

Innova and it’s partners referencing other Innova products is one thing. them coming out with a a disc and marketing it as “just like a Buzzz” would be different.

Say you advertised your theme park and said you had an indoor roller coaster with a space theme, “Galaxy Peak, like Space Mountain”, I think Disney would come after you pretty hard. And that’s without the whole prior relationship between Innova and Discmania wherein Discmania owned the names of the discs. If Innova actually referenced those names when marketing the “new” discs, it would certainly be infringing on Discmania's IP. I would assume they’d have a case that Innova was intending to use DM's trademark for their own gain.

Innova/Infinite/Whoever wouldn't need to do it- social media will do it for them.

What’s the saying? You can put feathers on your back but you’re still not a chicken?

You can try and copy a P2, but it’s still not a P2..

Hats of the DM guys for finally pulling off their own production. It will be interesting to see how the plastic compares/holds up. Impressive facility they have on their hands and well produced video introducing it. Makes you wonder why their distribution center is in Colorado, with this most likely being in their long term goal planning. Should have setup shop near one of the east coast ports.

Sale and ISO posts will be a fun mouthful now - ISO of Innova Produced d-line P2 from 2015 with the mini store stamp penned.

So does “reinvented” mean new plastic/manufacturer or does it mean new mold entirely (+old name)? I’ve been combing the thread/video and can’t seem to find a definitive answer, unless I missed it or lost my Lucky Charms decoder ring…

Somewhat related question, but is there a list out there of what disc names are trademarked? For example, a cursory search shows Teebird as being trademarked.

Was curious as to which disc names are protected, and how that would apply here.

While bumbling around it seems the Discmania crest has a figurative trademark owned by Innova Champion Europe. Don't think I understand things well enough to know the implications, or whether I'm overlooking something.

Innova Champion Europe is Jussi's company AFAIK
