This blog was formed primarily to expose what this author believes to be a false story that two of the worlds largest bearing manufacturers conspired to release as a news story in order to use it in marketing campaigns. Since that first project ended with neither company willing to release any information that could authenticate their story, we moved on to looking at all bearing counterfeiting and how it is reported.

Dear Mr McGuire,
We are acting as legal representatives of Schaeffler KG, Industriestr. 1-3, 91074 Herzogenaurach, Germany, in the matter you inquired.  Our opinion on product counterfeiting in Franconia in the matter you inquired was delayed on the grounds of the examination of the matters of legal concerns of the defendants and for reasons of coordination with our client and third parties.  Henceforth, however, we are now in a position to inform you on the fact that the criminal proceedings pending at the Local Court of Nuremberg (file number: 53 Ls 506 Js 489/6) were concluded in accordance with which the defendants were convicted of a crime.

Unfortunately, we are not capable of communicating any further information on this case for reasons of respecting the right to privacy of the defendants and in the interest of data protection.  Your understanding in this respect is appreciated.  Insofar as you might seek any further information in this matter, you are requested to contact the Local Court of Nuremberg.

We assume to have satisfied your interest in the information sought.

Kind regards
Jan Pryssok
