KWA has an American subsidiary that can be sued for copyright infringement.

CYMA is not having any trouble... because they're located in China, where they don't have any issues with copyrights.

Can you provide a link to the youtube video where it says this? It would be very unfortunate if it turns out this were true.

Well one of the staff members replied on the topic on KWA's forum and said it was not true.He said they had not copyright issues what so ever.I thought is why they had to discontinue the glock line?

The Glock line is NOT gone. They can not import them whole, so you have to buy a lower and an upper. They never stopped making them.
Current guns:
WE 3.8 Hicapa, TM Desert Eagle
Modified CA B&T Mp5/Mp5k hybrid
KJW M4 GBBr
CYMA M14, DE M3 shotgun

This may just be a shot in the dark but with the way H&K has been acting with private sales that "Infringe on their product" the might also be going after the manufacturers too. I hope I'm wrong though because I wouldn't mind owning that mp7. Well, worst comes to worst we'll just have to import the Ksc models.

Glock parts, lots of parts at great prices

My my.... just because we didn't sell the Glock replica doesn't mean we are being sue. Please search around. I have explained a billion times why we pulled "M" series off the shelves.

Just got the new 2009 KWA catalog... the MP7 is being made FOR Umarex...so I don't think they are having a fight with Umarex.

Also, on the H&K front... in another thread I wrote to, and got a reply back from, H&K-USA. He sounded genuinely on the side of airsoft regarding the issue of trademarks... however, it was basically out of his hands... but that he would forward my letter on up the chain... and also that mine was not the first.

The stinger (to them anyway, and it was NOT an idle threat... I never make idle threats) was that I am no longer considering buying another H&K product in real steel... and I've owned a couple in the past... so now they are losing money on their real steel sales due to their ideas with trades.

That being said, the Glock issue with KWA has been out in the open for a while. They were doing what any good corporate citizen does when faced with a potential legal issue... they follow the law... and the law in the USA says cease and desist... and Glock went the extra mile (and goodness knows how many legal $$$) to make sure that they had a lock on their shape and trigger design, etc, etc...

Maybe H&K will let it go... maybe not... or maybe one of the licensers of products will get a legal copy in the USA (and who knows, it might not even suck...) Or not...

I doubt that would make the least bit of a difference to them. You're a US civilian, not an operator, which means you should be honored that they would even let you have the most neutered of their designs, with horrible tech support and an extra side of condescension. Because you suck, and they hate you.
