Fascinating is only one element of this issue.
Then there is the mind numbing frustration that occurs when you mix in the curious legal parts along with the personalities involved. I still have a working Kodak Color Burst camera, but nothing to feed it. Of course, now I can no longer buy any film from Polaroid to go into my pack film holders for the view cameras also.
This kind of a thing seems to happen much too often. The history of the Cord automobile and the rotating legal challenges made by "The Big Three" automobile makers back around 1950 who simply depleted the financial reserves of the little company before it could really get the Cord into full production. Then we can also look at what happens every day in the "legal system" division associated with "family law" or "domestic relations."
