http://www.mmrmagazine.com/news.html The above link has details of the suit and Behringer's response to some of the assertions in the suit. It's at times comical, to say the least. This topic has been posted before (not by me, if it matters), and those threads were closed immediately as moderators of those forums felt a discussion of this issue couldn't remain civil in light of past Behringer threads. In this forum I'll give it a go so that it'll be no work for those mods, and here it will remain civil (I'm telling, not asking) and I'd much prefer it remain civil without my intervention. In the sense that this "Management and Performance" forum is a business-as-it-pertains-to-music forum, the topic seems a fair fit here. If this were just about Roland vs. Behringer I wouldn't care much, but I see the outcome of this case something that will also give insight into past & future issues not only about the many Behringer products that, to be far too kind, are of extremely questionable design origin, but also to issues relating to products like the many Fender clones which constitute probably 2/3 of the basses discussed on this site. In that light, keep these threads in mind : http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120253 http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=118198 So if this topic and the outcome of this trial is as interesting to you as it is to me, then discuss it here and discuss it repectfully and within forum rules.
