I was one of the 10 companies invited to participate in an advanced-notice conference call on the subject yesterday. Originally, the $5K fee for the “Design Kit” only gave 1 month of advanced sales. Everyone else could sell as of September 1st. A few of the bigger boys complained, though, and so now, I’m stuck with having to pay $5K, or not sell any 4th Edition product until January 2009.
A lot to think about.
