Meyer Optik Görlitz Trademark Acquired, Lenses Will Be Made Again, No Money Back For Kickstarters

Meyer Optik Görlitz

News8.de reports that Meyer Optik Görlitz got acquired by another German company, OPC Optic. A press text can be read below.

Two important points to list:

  • OPC Optic will make Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses again
  • If you had a lens on preorder on Kickstarter/Indiegogo you will not get your money back. OPC Optic acquired the brand name but not the “net SE” company that is behind the mess. Still, OPC Optic is considering to give those people a discount on future lens purchases

The takeover by OPC Optics includes all brand rights to Meyer Optik Görlitz and the associated products. Open claims from customers and suppliers towards net SE remain with net SE.

Press release after the break.
