Re: Don't copyrights slow this kind of thing up?

I imagine Ricoh would "flip out" if Sigma put a K-mount on a camera body.  Kodak is famous for having a lot of early digital patents so maybe they had something to bargain with.  Any cross-mount stuff probably requires endless negotiation.  But I could be wrong I just seem to remember Pentax renegotiating the right to use K-mount with Tamron recently.
