Default MVP Patent

Seems like the patent was granted. (Did I miss this posted here?)

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-P...6&RS=9,731,216

Does this mean anything for other overmolds on the market?

Edit:

Just realized the thread title makes it look like they have a new disc called the Patent.

Thanks for posting! That's awesome as it provides insight into their process. And it covers discs up to 30 cm and 200g... So full sized lid coming at some point?!?

Not necessarily. Just covers maximum PDGA regulations. Have to make sure the patent covers all reasonable possibilities.

I also want to congratulate Chad, Brad, and the whole MVP gang for getting this approved.

Ha just making sure you aren't on the edge of your seat for the 1.0mm class forever.

But now that I think about it...a slow catch disc that can handle a full power throw without needing 70 degrees of hyzer would be awesome...

It looks like that the patent covers the way mvp does things. At least thats what it appears to say at the very bottom. So it sounds much like the innova thumbtrack where the way is covered not the ability to have a aid to the thumb at least in the case of the thumbtrack. I could be wrong but thats at least how i interpreted it. So as long as the bonding style and density of plastics dont mimic mvp then a company should have the ability to use a overmolding process.

In my limited understanding of current overmolds and patents, it seems like innova and lat 64 won't ha e to change anything because they dont put extra weight in their rim.

This is pretty neat!
I haven’t seen MVP promote this, which surprises me.

I got the link off the bottom of their website. So they are promoting it, very quietly.
