FirstSpear Friday Focus: FirstSpear and Crye Precision Resolve Dispute

Friday, July 9th, 2021

FirstSpear Expands Patent Portfolio

July 9, 2021 — The patent dispute between FirstSpear and Crye Precision has been amicably resolved. Under the terms of the agreement, FirstSpear acquires all rights, title and interest in Crye’s U.S. patent 9,173,436, adding to FirstSpear’s expansive and established patent portfolio. The lawsuit between the companies has been dismissed and all other terms of the settlement are confidential.

“While industry conflict is never ideal, this outcome allows us to expand our technology offerings and bring even greater value to our customers and industry partners,” said FirstSpear CEO & President Scott Carver.  “Combining the Crye patent with our existing technology expands our portfolio of battle tested intellectual property that provides maximum development flexibility and protection for FirstSpear and our licensees.”

For information on licensing FirstSpear Technology visit www.first-spear.tech or contact FirstSpear Technology Group at [email protected].

Editor’s note: This statement is a guest post by FirstSpear and may leave you with questions. I know I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this over the last couple of months as it transitioned from lawsuit to practical application. I understand there will be even more questions and concerns and so does FirstSpear since it could potentially affect every soft goods manufacturer who uses laser cut technology.

I think it’s important for industry to fully understand what this means and plan on a follow-up Q&A shortly with FirstSpear, so feel free to put any questions you might want asked in the comments section of this post.

FirstSpear Friday Focus: Battle of San Juan 123rd Anniversary and Rough Rider T-Shirt

Friday, July 2nd, 2021

On July 1, 2021, the 123rd anniversary of the epic battle of San Juan Hill, Cuba. FirstSpear pays tribute the Rough Riders and the gallant charge made that day to secure the critical heights. This charge ultimately led to freeing the oppressed peoples of Cuba to pursue their own destiny.

This iconic photo was taken that day after the successful charge. Legendary famous Law Man and Troop CO “Buckey” O’Neil once said, “War is argument, best way to settle it is to kill the other fella.” This emboldened the Rough Riders to continue forward to victory even though he was killed in the assault.

FirstSpear has created an iconic, limited edition commemorative T-shirt with this photo and quote.

FirstSpear Friday Focus: FS Proudly Supports the Tim Tebow Foundation’s Operator for a Day

Friday, June 25th, 2021

FirstSpear is proud to support the Tim Tebow Foundation in their “Operator For a Day” event that was hosted on June 19, 2021, in Perryville, Florida.

The Tim Tebow Foundation is committed to advancing the fight for the precious lives of those who have been trafficked or who are at risk of becoming victims to human trafficking. Directly and in partnership with other organizations in the US and abroad, the Foundation is actively fighting against human trafficking in three ways. First, they are proactive. They focus on the implementation of programs designed to preserve and strengthen families to reduce the risk of vulnerability. Secondly, they are reactive. The Foundation works in conjunction with rescue capable teams on the front lines where direct rescue of those who are enslaved occurs. Thirdly, they are committed to supporting survivors’ in recovery by providing them with the comprehensive care resources needed for healing to overcome the vicious trauma and abuse of human trafficking. 

In 2010, FirstSpear emerged from a bloodline of industry innovation. FirstSpear employs a methodology that integrates evolutionary design with advanced material components. An ambitious mandate demands branding that harnesses the company’s ethos, and “FirstSpear” is the translated namesake of the Primus Pilus, the Senior Centurion of a Roman Legion. FirstSpear dedicates our efforts to present-day Centurions, those willing to sacrifice to preserve our heritage and secure our future.
