    They been bitching about this for years nothing is ever going to come of it. If they dont like it they need to start sending more shit over not there sporterized crap then maybe they'd make some money.

    import laws say they can only send the sporterized bullshit... someone needs to challenge the sporting clause of the import ban. should be easily defeated, with a group of judges with half a brain... thats the hard part though.

    Short of trademarking the appearance of newer AK-pattern rifles (a tad too late for the AK-47/74), there's really nothing in intellectual property law to prevent the manufacure of knock-offs. The Soviets essentially gave the design away to all of their client states during the cold war. Given that the government(s) signing whatever licensing agreements back then are by and large gone ... where's the claim again?

    Oh I don't really expect they'd have to. I was just trying to attract attention to the thread. :mamoru:

    I know that the Buran shuttle was a blatant copy of NASA's space shuttle, but I had no idea they also had a kockoff version of the B29...

    Wikipedia says that the Soviets reverse-engineered the B-29 as the Tu-4, Tu-80, and Tu-85.

    im sick of russia... i like SOME of their products, mainly for the fact that its a rare item... BUT, im sick of them. putin needs to fucking die. hes nothing but a commy and wants to provoke a nuclear war with the US. blah blah blah, start another cold war, blah blah blah. fuck you russia, fuck you.

    hes like every other piece of shit commy, when confronted with facts he beats around the bush and tries to shift the blame to someone else. its like that transistria video about arms trafficking...

    "we know you traffic arms, one of your generals tried to sell us a dirty bomb"

    this never happend, we dont have any of those. we wish we did, but we dont."

    bullfuckingshit. never believe anything that comes out of a russian, or commies mouth.
