Well, I've been involved in situations where less than ethical business types have so annoyed founders, that founders have gone out, sought funding elsewhere and started all over. Just would like to be sure that isn't what were experiencing.
It has taken years and millions to build tngn's facilities. Also, tngn licenses some of Atalas patents but it also has some of their own. I would guess that tngn patents are surrounding the manufacturing process but can't be sure. They were probably filed as of the work that has been done by the company over the past few years. So your answer is...no.
