"... Lionel filed suit in late July in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York
against K-Line, company owner Maury Klein and Robert Grubba, a former Lionel
employee now working for K-Line. Among the complaint's allegations were the
disclosure of trade secrets and copyright infringement.
"As part of the settlement, Hillsborough, N.C.-based K-Line agreed to stop
selling all products that use Lionel's technology by the end of its 2005
fiscal year. It also must pay Lionel royalties on all of those products sold
during that time.
"K-Line also agreed to reimburse Lionel up to $700,000 for its legal and
related costs, Lionel said. ..."

Does this mean that K-Line will no longer sell engines with Lionel's Command Control system?
Or is the Lionel technology that will no longer be sold only that which was stolen (whatever that was)?
