    Perhaps. SportDog does have some deep pockets, and the Hawx transmitter has a strong resemblance to SportDog's.

    Very interesting. I asked Tom years ago if they were affiliated with Sport Dog. I really wondered when they came out with the Hawx stuff.

    Explains a lot maybe. How do you guys find this stuff?

    In 2010 Radio Systems Corporation, Innotek, Inc filed a patent infringement suit against BB. Looks like with the intro of Hawx that did it. Radio Systems Corporation, Innotek, Inc is the plaintiff in the 2013 case.

    Does anyone not find it at least a little ironic that BB posted on their site that they were looking for a buyer for "their" patents?
