    Their patent can only be for A sublimation process - sublimation ink and dysperse dyes have existed longer than Sawgrass.
    they have but sawgras patented first other were rather silly.

    I'm referring to the website Mags, eBay is a different kettle of fish. VeRO status puts all the power in the account holders hand, rightly or wrongly.

    What exactly is innovative about a 'method'?

    Yup, started selling Inktec on Ebay back in 2011, when there was very little sublimation ink on there, and what was there was cheap unbranded Chinese stuff. I was the only one selling a quality brand and surviving Sawgrass' idle threats. I was doing very well, before loads of other sellers noticed and copied, with the bottom then falling out of the market, and I had the best match for "sublimation ink" for a few years, until our main business got too busy to concentrate on it, and keep up with all the ink sales/advice enquiries, especially when some calls were over half an hour and then I could see from feedbacks that they went and bought from another seller! Have recently decided to get back in the game though.
