    Folks,
    I am researching patent infringement cases in the snow plow industry. Anyone got any examples or precedents of any significant litigation in the industry?

    Not really. I realize it is a pretty broad scope, but what I want to figure out is the extent to which these companies are competitive in protecting their patents and also, any litigation of the type that basher mentioned.

    @basher
    thank you very much. that was a great help. appreciate it.

    Have you found any more from other sources?

    existing litigation, product research?
    just curious, have been watching for a fresh filing into which this might fit.
