Looks like pyrex brand in the US was bought by one entity and Pyrex the original is owned by a European company. They could sell borosilicate class in the US but can't call it Pyrex.

Guessing there was a spam post bumping this 9 year old thread. The first post since 2012 says "spam reported", and it was likely a post just before that which they reported and was deleted.
