I have heard a rumour that LPE in Portugal have gone bust and the EU are looking for their 3 million euro back  Wink
Pico , Vago and Bahia have not been made for a while because of legal action by Jo Richardís for unpaid royalties. Think we have been there before lol. 

If this is true I donít think we will be seeing the Po@nstar any time soon . 

Does any one have any more info on this or even if itís true .  Smile

I found it funny too , not so sure I would find it so funny if I was a Sunfish owner in the USA .  Confused
Though to be honest I would be very surprised if the owner of this company had not already transferred the ip of the Sunfish and the Laser to other companies already  Dead

actually, i need to clarify my throwaway comment.

Hilarious if Rastegar really has demonstrated again that heís not fit to run a limited liability company.

But there are laws about insolvent trading that make directors personally responsible for their companyís debts. I hope Jo gets all his royalties of course, preferably at Rís personal expense, and the guy is also banned from ever being involved in a company again. 

Bonus if the pornstar is stillborn; who needs it. Thereís plenty enough single-handers already

Don't get too excited folks. I think we can be pretty confident that the IP will be well separated from the companies doing the trading, and there's nothing illegal about managing a business badly, to get in trouble you have to step over the line to stuff that's actually prohibited.

and prohibited includes taking credit when you donít have the funds to pay. One would hope Joís royalty contract would account for that IP/trading differentiation(s). But the Kirby case shows thereís form here of course

AIUI - some v. wealthy people use debt-laden companies to help write off personal tax exposure - it kind of doesnít matter what the company trades. Theyíd have to be quite unlucky to get their fingers burnt with such a stroll in the park, especially when the wealth management experts claim itís nothing but plain sailing for optimising tax contributions

If itís true , history tells us you will be correct. This company owner always seem to know how push it right to the edge of the law without actually crossing it. One can only hope he doesnít know EU law as well has he knows the laws in the USA. BUT Iím not holding my breath.
