I realize they will probably claim it wasn't meant the way I took it but they started all this so they should be extra cognitive and careful of what they say and do going forward IMO. Shame on them.

A LOT of people didn’t back her. Many people were and are against her.

Wow! I am blown away by this lawsuit! A patent shouldn’t have been extended in the first place as Stephanie B’s legal team suggests. They moved the cutting surface to the edge of the die instead of in the middle. Really? So what? It’s still a chemically etched die. It still cuts. It still works with stamped images. Changing the parameters so slightly does not mean it’s a new invention. I hope this law suit dies a painful death. That’s like a car manufacturer moving the steering wheel over by 1” and claiming that deserves a patent. ‘No other car company shall move their steering wheels now. Ever.’ Seriously? I’m not a big consumer of Sizzix anyways but I’m going to unsubscribe from their emails. Dang this makes me mad!

SU isnt selling anything sizzix in the new catalog. So that's why embossing folders are disappearing too, I think.

Interesting. Makes me glad that I use a Spellbinders die cutting machine and my paper trimmers are from Tonic. Sizzix may be shooting themselves in the foot. I rarely buy their brand of dies. They don't have anything appealing to me. I guess we'll see what happens.

There are other companies that make Embossing Folders. And I don't think Sizzix has the patent for those. I thought Provocraft did? But I could be wrong.

I don't know what your budget is, but Maker's Movement's Crossover II machine uses an 8.5x12" platform. I have their Big Sister (older model from when they were still Cheery Lynn, though still not that old), and it works fabulously! You can get the Crossover II at their website - cost $249.99. HTH!

I have thought about theirs...but it's so much more expensive, I didn't know that it would be worth THAT much. Basically it's double the price...and probably not as easy to find plates and such...so thats why I figured I'd go with one of the two more common ones. Thanks though for the idea! I really had wondered about that one, I liked the idea of the adjustable rollers...but couldn't get past the price. LOL

Ok...this helps me understand why when I went to Michael's in Canada recently that I could not find any Big Kick machine or any of it's pads/plates. There were hardly any dies or other machines either -only some Cricut machine. This is so sad and so ridiculous.

We still have lots of sizzix dies and diecutting machines in our local stores. I don't think they are doing away with them. SU just discontinued their relationship with Sizzix.

Interesting...it seems that these kinds of lawsuits often end up hurting the company that initiates them. Sizzix and Provo Craft had a big fallout years ago. I hear a lot of negative about the creator of the MISTI suing other companies. Cricut lost a lot of customers when they sued companies like Sure Cuts a Lot over making software to use on the Cricut. I do think patent owners need to protect their patents, but the Hero Arts statement on Scrapbook Update really resonates for me--we are a crafting community. I wish the patent owners would (and maybe they do!) contact companies they believe violate their patent by warning of a suit unless all future dies are made by their company--making an agreement to work together. It's got to be cheaper in the long run than a lawsuit. In an industry where CASE is favored, there needs to be a happy medium--legally.

Looks like I may have to take a trip to the US and cruise the stores there

Come on down! LOL.. I just bought a sizzix doily die not too long ago. I also looked at the diecutting machines, even though I have two. The clear cutting plates are $9.99 at michaels, but $12.99 at acmoore. My LSS sells them for $7.95 so I pick up a pair there whenever I get out.

I rarely purchase matching dies these days, and use my SNC for cutting stamped images. I solved the inside cuts issue by using Corel Draw, SCAL, or Adobe Illustrator depending on the design. Actually Silhouette Studo Designer Edition is an economical program for editing stamped images as well. I save the files so I only have to edit the image cut lines once. Wonder if they’ll go after the SNC next. I’m just waiting for Provocraft (Cricut) to file suite against WRMK for making the adapter for use with their machines, bet that’s coming next.
