In accordance with the terms published here: http://www.vesc-project.com/trademark_policies_page
Enertion Boards PTY LTD will no longer use VESC on any products.
Over the coming weeks, we will work to update our website & marketing materials in accordance to the guidelines.
Some commentary on this topic for those interested.
I personally believe Frank (Trampa) & Ben Vedder (VESC project) are working with the best intentions to ensure the best possible product is made available to the community. There is nothing easy in this world & they are both putting it all on the line and working tirelessly to make an amazing product. I applaud their efforts.
Whether it is a popular decision or not, the steps they have both taken to protect the VESC name are a very positive sign for the esk8 industry, it’s a sign that our beloved industry is maturing & becoming a legitimate industry that’s worth investing in & protecting.
All the Vendors, Small to medium business & Larger business that supply goods & services to the Esk8 community should be proud of what we have built. Together we are better & the consumer ultimately wins in the end.
Finally, If you don’t agree with a particular vendor or company strategy, motive or ideology the best thing you can do is spend your money elsewhere. Arguing or complaining is unnecessary, the market will always determine what the correct decision was/is and the results will be undeniable.
