eevRANT: Lily Drones Folds. A 45M FAIL09:56

The Lily Drone company has folded, admitted defeat, and will not deliver after 3 years, $30M in pre-sales plus $15M in VC funding.
What a spectacular FAIL!

This video clearly falls under the category of “Nominative use” a.k.a “Trademark Fair Use” under the (1992) U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
There is no other way to report the news without using the company name. And there was no suggestion of endorsement
or sponsorship.

UPDATE: Lawsuit from the District Attorney:
San Francisco District Attorney files lawsuit against drone maker Lily for false advertising
And refunds might not happen, they owe the bank:
