    Royal Canadian Mint sueing Royal Australian Mint.....

    Canada claims Aussie Stole their Patent on how to put paint on metal,hence on some of our commemorative coins,Australia claims it was ( sufficiently different to have not infringed )..on a similar point,Australia patented the first polymer note in 1973..in the 1980s and 1990s Canada tested a polymer,$20's and $50's were auctioned in 2012,the Americans developed a polymer substrate and trademarked it as DuraNote,,so it is still polymer but altered the same as the paint on the coins has been altered,what do you think,is this all a waste of money..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..http://nationalpost.com/news/canada/royal-canadian-mint-sues-royal-australian-mint-in-row-over-printing-of-red-poppies    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymer_banknote      Related image

    Sorry but I can't get too excited about lawsuits concerning patent rights. Businesses sue each other regularly over patents, names, mottos, logos, etc. It costs companies lots of money to go to court over these issues but most can well afford it. We all know that government has endless amounts of money to have court cases go on forever. How important is this issue? In my opinion, not very but perhaps I'm missing something.

    ....opinion : yes, smart minds can come together, communicate,problem solve and settle out of court

    Emphasis on "smart minds" and "problem solve". We're talking government here. :)

    ....these days, there seems to be more blame gaming and less problem solving
