Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you have any form of contract at all? What does it say about cutting you out?
When you say 'we' designed bearings? Who holds a patent on them, if anyone?
So you have not signed over the IP?
No you cant be cut out. You own the IP - they can NOT go direct as you hold the IP.
Unless they buy you out, they cant cut you out
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
