Ammunition Inventor Wins $15 Million Patent Infringement Suite Against the US Army

LMAO! This isn't the first time the Army has screwed a small business. It is nice to see one get some of their own back for a change.

Quote:
Liberty Ammunition, a small business in Florida, won a $15.6 million judgment against the Army in a patent infringement lawsuit Dec. 19. The company alleged that the service passed on proprietary data and specifications for its lead-free copper-core, steel-tipped bullet technology to other vendors.

In addition to the judgment, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims ordered the Army to pay the Florida-based company a royalty of 1.4 cents for every lead-free bullet it purchases until the company’s patent expires in 2027.

At issue is the Army’s enhanced performance round known as the M855A1.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

This was the same company using the SFA logo. I went on their website and I no longer see it on their ammo.

PEO Soldier did the same thing with Paraclete's release system on armor vests. I wonder if D'Anunzio or MSA is having their lawyers look into this.
