The Luckiest SOB On The Face Of The Earth Is The Guy With The Stormtrooper Helmets
— Posted by Darren
The only way Ainsworth won his case has to do with that he sells the replicas only in the UK, not the US. (Although he used to at one time) Over a period of eight years, Ainsworth has sold $2,500 + (estimate) for each helmet; the lawsuit from Lucasfilm was for 20 Mil.
Now, some folks like the notion that this is a “David vs. Goliath’ situation, how folks who are really darned lucky can stick it to “the man” and whatnot. Yes, I consider that Mr. Ainsworth is, right now, the bona fide luckiest SOB on this Earth or at least one side of the Death Star.
The lawyers were paid up, that’s for sure.
Chime in, Int’l friends.
