A financial group seeks a default judgment against Freestyle Music Park for non-payment, while BMW seeks same for allegedly using its Mini trademarks without consent. The park has been closed since last year.
Read more from The Sun News.
Honestly, at this point you'd get better results suing Six Flags! ;)
Didn't HRP get a license for use of the Mini stuff when it was first built?
It's a strange claim. If it's about the shape of the cars, wouldn't they be suing CF for the former Italian Jobs too, since they still use the same car bodies?
I assume the licenses didn't transfer, but still. Sad that this park is just sitting there and no one with money knows how to run it or is interested in running it.
They need to just pull the plug on this place and sell what they can to cover the judgement and potential judgments. If they wait to long, the assets (coasters) will lose more value and be harder to unload.
As to the BMW suit, I don't understand it at all. From what I understand, CF made some minor modifications to their cars so they could suspend the BMW licensing fee. The modifications were pretty minor but I guess they were enough.
The Roundabout cars looked as much like a Mini as the CF cars do now. Of course one could argue that no Mini has 3 rows of seats like the Roundabout cars do.Last edited by DaveStroem, Wednesday, June 2, 2010 5:12 PM
