Once patents expire, or when someone is not willing to legally protect their intellectual property, such as what TM has over all done, your right to "your" property is lost legally. Cybergun is just protecting their property that they licensed from firearm manufacturers such as FN to be able to market them legally.

They are doing what they must do to legally to protect themselves, but I guess this is being mean capitalistic pigs don't you think so?

aah to the contrary my friend Marui did went after company like pro gear, CA and G&P but since their patent rights are japan domestic market only they are S.O.L
