"I'm not sure if UK laws allow for the same type of thing. I know you do have crazy high VAT, but apparently that's not enough to stop it. What are average prices for lava lamps over there? Lifespan vs Mathmos"

k-nano replied to k-nano's discussion What is the trademark?
"I think they've been using that term for awhile now. It's possible they agreed to not ship to the US so that they could keep using the term without constant threat of lawsuit. I think that's more of a back door type deal not made…"
