Hey I wandered over to this website http://go-l.com/home/index.htm after reading the watchdog's article about it in the Dec. issue. I found a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo threatening MPC. I'm wondering what MPC's take on all this is?

Oh wow, I just read that article yesterday but didn't check the site. Interesting.

I hope MaxPC stands their ground - afterall, if Go-L ever had to provide physical evidence in court of their technologies, the case could go on for years :lol:

I doubt the MPC will reply,


From: http://download.cacheflow.com/release/C ... lnotes.htm (at the bottom of the page)

"CacheFlow is a registered trademark of CacheFlow Inc. in the U.S. and worldwide."

ALthough, Go-L does have what appear to be unregistered trade marks on it as well. At least, thats what it looks like at the USPTO.

As far as the legal stand point, The watch dog section is OP/ED and that they didn't make the claims directly.

If they did something wrong - They should retract.

On the other hand, Go-L owns a trademark on PuRAM. So What??? I would like to see the patent.

What Go-L should do in my opinion is quit attempting to pull an SCO. Wanna make MPC look bad? Build and make avaliable the things you say you build and make avaliable. Marketing prototypes doesn't count amoung computer enthusiast.

After all, even Manta has a 6.66Ghz air cooled system :) I just can't let yuo see it - pictures only.

If Go-L has gotten the shaft, its because they went out, found it, sharpened it, and impaled themselves on it.

I am totally open to buying a Go-L system. The moment I can have an independant third party confirm they do what Go-L says they do.

Until then, Go-L should put thier lawyers and Marketeers (notice that is spelled correctly) back in a box and get back to making systems.

just MHO

Hrmm, I can't really say anything about any kind of ongoing legal conflicts with the magazine. However, I don't think we've actually received anything from go-L or any other companies.

I wonder if they really think that any publication has to let them approve printed articles though because of their internal policies. That's rich.

That's PRO bono. That means only pro's, so obviously he is willing to pay.

oh lordy! Why must every stupid company jump right to threats and lawsuits when they get bad press. What happened to just rolling with the punches and trying to improve things?

Ah, why bother when you can just run to your lawyers crying like you did when you were a kid. Pansys!

Threatening legal action has been the American way for a loooong time now.

I think Maximum PC shoudl sue Go-L for its libellous claim that MPC published "False" information.

http://go-l.com/home/index.htm

Has anyone run a BBB search on these jokers?
