Now that Korg has released the Korg ARP 2600, I'm wondering what the legal basis of this is.

Do they have a licence from however owns the copyright (or intellectual property) on the schematics? Considering that Korg hired a founder of ARP points strongly that this was not a cleanroom redevelopment.

It's weird that someone would licence both Korg and Behringer to produce the same units.

Can anyone make, and sell, copies of ARP's synthesizers from the ARP schematics? And/or use the logo?

I think Korg owns the ARP logo. Behringer won't use the logo but a number can't be trademarked, so Berhringer 2600 is fine.

The Korg 2600 FS is beautiful but I do like that the Behringer has vco sync and two vco 2 style oscillators.
