Specialized Roubaix Kerfluffle

Specialized has been in the news a lot over their attempt to dickishly enforce their “Roubaix” trademark. Turns out, they don’t really hold the trademark, their non-dickish parent company (ASI) does. More from SingletrackWorld.com:

While ASI does have the authority to object to Mr. Richter’s use of the name and while we at ASI understand the importance of protecting our bicycle model names, we believe that Mr. Richter did not intend for consumers to confuse his brick-and-mortar establishment or his wheel line with our Roubaix road bike. And we believe consumers are capable of distinguishing his bike shop and wheel line from our established bikes.

So that’s done … hopefully.
