Yeah, I remember when that was posted on TFB (several years ago), though I admit that I had forgotten about it until now.

H&K's lawyers undoubtedly have better things to do with their time than fight for sales territory where they were never competitive in the first place.
According to wikipedia (not the best source, admittedly,) Iranian and Pakistani manufacture is under license, so H&K at least gets to wet their beak.

Dont forget the turkish MKE T-94 ZSG, also under licence (and weird, since its sold in Europe. Probably because they suck and they hate them so much they let another company to sell them)

H&K licenses out manufacture to a ton of places. I thought that was common knowledge
