Ok, ok, I have to admit here that I had a proper home made caffe latte for breakfast this morning, while the GulfStream get its annual oil change, and the airstrip at the back of our house is cleared of any debris .... <ROFL>
On a slightly more serious note: Montblanc actually did ask us in a very friendly email to please hide the discussions on the pens to be announced April 5.
Please note that MB-stores are under an embargo as well, and there also is the copyright issue. The images posted from Montblanc folders are indeed copyrighted, so can't be published anywhere without express permission from Montblanc, they can actually take legal action to enforce this, and would be completely in their right to do so.
Our relationship with Montblanc is such, however, that they actually apologize for the inconvenience, but would like the material to be removed from view. Considering they could request this in a completely different manner, and which they do with others, is in my view very positive.
For the first time in our history, we have a meeting with Montblanc rather than just a few email exchanges, and will discuss the way forward, next month (March) - it is brought forward from April, which is just great.
HTH, warm regards, Wim
