Seems like the original question posted by Eric was very clear in scope and respectful of the IP concerns that have recently come to the forefront.

I also agree that it doesn't seem unreasonable for organizers of unsanctioned events to understand what may pose issues with KCBS so there is less chance for legal matters to be pursued in relation to how a contest is judged if a contest does not want or cannot afford to pay KCBS a licensing fee. Should a KCBS official not choose to respond in this forum that would also be understandable IMO.

It just blows me away that our "Competition BBQ" hobby has come to this. BBQ as intellectual property, wow. I guess this really makes the case for small organizations.

I hope I don't get sued for putting meat onto a cylinderical device with a carbon substance and heating up flesh based animal product for my culinary enjoyment.

On topic, I'd imagine that if you put on a contest and only used one of the items mentioned KCBS would be hard pressed to put together a meaningful suit (excluding the blatant use of their copyrighted printed instructions). However, if you used them all...the devil's best lawyer would lose that case. Not sure to what avail though. Once they win they'd then have to prove you somehow damaged them in order to receive compensation.
