There are the most
important stages of the Strimko history in brief. We hope
this will help you in finding answers to some of your
questions in the unprecedented case of Strimko puzzle
which is unauthorizedly used by Conceptis.
Conceptis Puzzles (Dave Green) informs
Strimko authors (The Grabarchuk Family) that
Conceptis decided to add Strimko to Conceptis portfolio
under another name, and can create such puzzles by
themselves. Strimko authors answer that they are ready
to negotiate flexibly all possible terms and conditions.
Conceptis does not make any partnership proposals to
Strimko authors. The negotiations failed. Strimko
authors warned Conceptis that if Conceptis use Strimko
(under any name) with the same features, Strimko authors
will understand that as a direct and clear infringement
of Strimko authors' intellectual property rights.
Conceptis posts at their
website a new Sudoku version showing its alias
names--their (Chain Sudoku) and original (Strimko); see
Google's snapshot; ~700Kb. A few days later
Conceptis removes Strimko name from their page. Conceptis
pre-launches and launches Chain Sudoku.

On August 10, 2009,
Conceptis Puzzles launched a "new" puzzle concept which
Chain Sudoku (see
screenshot 2). It's nothing else than well know
Strimko puzzle which they simply misappropriate, and now
use without any authorization or licence from its creators
The Grabarchuk Family.
