    What an ass!! As much as I love the clay magic bars, I will be seriously considering using my second favorite bars on a regular basis. I don't believe anyone has the right to monopolize a marketplace in the fashion he has. Great info, Chris. Thanks.

    So this means that you could not import Bilt Hamber clay into the USA

    I hate clay magic bars with a passion,I find them to be an inferior clay compared to the english made clay bars which only need water as a lube and do not fall to pieces, leaving residue on your finger

    I thought that the US had laws that prevent monopolies, what happened to fair and equal ‘competition’?

    If we go and make a strike against AM to not use their clay anymore, what kind of clay and from who can we get it, sine it is impossible for now to get Riccardo clay.

    What makes ya'll think that "other" clays said to be manufactured and sold here in the USA aren't in fact AutoMagic bars privately labeled?

    Add a color, reduce the abrasives, add more abrasives, add a scent and a new name....but what if it's all AM's??

    Early on, soon after I was told Opti-Clay would no longer be sold here in the States in a phone call with Doctor G. I not only stocked up but also made it known that because of this action I would boycott AutoMagic. I no longer buy or use anything they put out, either with their label or privately labeled. So if you wish to send a message and you use AM's products then stop.

    Is there a list of what products he has interest in? Might be nice to have a list so we know what not to buy.

    It's not just a theroy, all clay sold in the USA comes from AWC.

    Not to sound like a wee-wee but we are in Canada. The Patent does not hurt us at all as we only sell in Canada anyhow. Even if I was able to sell in the USA it would not help because all the other vendors in the USA would likely start selling the Yellow clay as they did before the lawsuits. I mean it would be oen thing if Clay Magic sucked nuts but it's not a bad clay, there is no point going on a legal crusade that most companies would lose. All you can do in the USA is buy your clay from this fine gentleman,
