What a mess!
Gibson Guitars was raided by federal agents and many assets were seized. Why? Because Gibson may have violated a law in India. India says no they didn’t.
Representatives in Tennessee, where Gibson is based, have introduced legislation to loosen the regulations that ensnared the guitar maker, but the new regs have been met with opposition, even from major music personalities.
Gibson is not without support, though. Here’s a link to an organization rallying around the instrument maker. You’ll find links to stories that will relate the history of this debacle.
