I bet they don't own shit and some fuckers just trying it on.
Competition & all.
There slimey cheeky bastards anyway with the whole Tonebender trademark stuff.
I wouldn't expect anything less from them.

I wonder why they deleted their Wikipedia page yesterday?

Yesterday: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s ... al_Company
Today: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_British_Pedal_Company

They didn't delete it, someone called Deb deleted it because it has no significance.
No explanation of significance (real person/animal/organization/web content/organized event))

HIWATT (The Harrison's) sent a letter just like this to Calyton @ HITONE telling him he must cease and desist as his cabinets looked too similar to theirs and COULD BE mistaken for Hiwatt garbage. It's not the first time they've accosted him. He had already planned on a new cab design in the works so didn't bother doing anything.

Look at metropolis. Look at Friedman. From a distance they look quite similar to the real deal Marshall. You don't see Marshall sending letters like a bunch of shit bags.

Cock smokers are cock smokers. Fuck em all.

I think it was in breach of Wikipedia T&C about "Unambiguous advertising or promotion" seems like the edittor Deb has shut down a bunch of pages like this. :oldgrin:

The seller on eBay that was just recently selling those nice Zonk, Buzzaround,Tone Bender cases said he was just threatened with a lawsuit if he continued to sell those cases that's why he is not making or selling any more. My bet it's on these scumbag BPC douche bags ruined a good thing for all of us. His cases were really freakin awesome. :gripe:
