I just got an email from the equity agent who is supposedly responsible for liquidating the assets of Sunline. In the email it has actual dollar values affixed to the various intellectual properties Sunline used to own (trademarks, molds, designs, etc). I've gone over the message pretty close and it appears to be legitimate. How they got my name/email address is a mystery though.

Get this; for Sunlines entire portfolio of IP they only want $600,000. To me, that sounds REALLY cheap for products with the name cache that Sunline enjoyed. Sure wish I had the money -- I'd love to be the one who resurrected Sunline. Where's Warren Buffet when you need him...

Warren Buffett would certainly check out the validity before investing money. Remember the saying "if you sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't."

It'll take much more than full ownership of the intellectual property to resurrect the production of Sunline products. The $600,000 would only be a fraction of the start up costs.
