It's pretty hard to think of a company that so blatently copied another company's designs as innovative, even is they did improve on that design. Has the relationship between Zeus and Campagnolo been discussed on this list in the past? I have always wondered if Zeus and Campy had a licensing arrangement, or if it just that the Italian patent lawyers sent out from Vicenza all disappeared going through the Basque. (So now you're going to tell us that it's a shame Campy stole their designs from Zeus, right Jerry?)
