Protection of a Product's Look and Feel Is of Growing Importance in Emerging Technologies

We delivered and now we're seeing our waiting list grow as a result.' The Pro V2 is expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2013 and the company is in the process of identifying which of the early adopters on their waiting list will receive beta product ahead of the launch.
