    We've already been through all this, yes Roland has a patent on mesh heads, there are a bunch of other posts somewhere on this sit pertaining to it.

    I don't think Roland has a patent on mesh heads at all, just a patent for their positional sensing system (using one piezo).

    Yamaha is a Japanese company, the patent Roland holds might pertain to companies manufacturing in Japan, not internationally. I don't know enough about international law to tell you for certain. Perhaps Roland feels these small companies don't pose as big a threat as Yamaha.

    Not sure about this particular case, but there's a basic concept that goes hand-in-hansd with 'patents' called 'licenses.' Perhaps Yamaha said no, Pintech and Hart said 'yes'?
