    I read the patent complaint filed by Aqualung, i reviewed the included patent diagrams, and looked at examples of the Seasoft Nite Edge knife and sheath that Aqualung's complaint states infringes on their patent....I don't see it, what am I missing?

    Seasoft's issues is not something that affects the world's diving community. I don't recall if Bruce if is specifically named in the lead disposal/pollution complaints. If not and If Seasoft is incorporated or a LLC you could be considered libelous in your insistence that Bruce has done something "inherently wrong".

    Please stay on topic. If you have an issue with a poster, please use the "report post" at the bottom of one of their posts. Such public accusations are inappropriate and derail the thread.

    No idea, I just saw it and was curious if that was the other issue alluded to.

    AL is quite fast with lawyers.. no saying right or wrong.

    Local government? WA Department of Ecology enforces MTCA/RCRA statewide here and Labor and Industries enforces OSHA here statewide.

    At least under MTCA the fine structure looks roughly like this:
    $100-1000 for paperwork errors or violations with no release of dangerous substances
    $1000-10,000 for smaller first time accidental spills by operators who didnt cut corners and despite best practices still had an accidental release
    $10,000-75,000 second time releases (perhaps years after the first release) but still by an operator who is making good faith efforts and not cutting corners in their business practices
    $75,000+ large releases, repeat offenders, willful violations. I have seen fines up to $500K

    The fines are tiered so that they can't be blown off as a slap on the wrist cost of doing business. A $197,000 fine was not just pulled out of thin air, that is indicative of egregious behavior by someone who should have known better. Basically profiting at the expense of human and environmental health.
