Pentax/Hoya K10/20D D-LI50 Battery?

I just bought a brand new Pentax D-LI50 battery which was still sealed in the box but when I took it out of the box it had "HOYA" written where it says "PENTAX" on my other 2 batteries. The specifications are exactly the same (unlike a lot of the 3rd party batteries which I have 2 of also) as the Pentax branded ones. Also, the"!CAUTION" and "RECYCLE" stickers are exactly the same. And, before anybody asks the inevitable question, Yes, I did buy it on ebya for $14.99 + free ship from a person in Fort Worth, Texas.
I know about Hoya owning Pentax and I doubt that they would contact me personally to let me know about the change but has anybody else out there come across this situation yet? (if at all)

All DSLRs with made after the Hoya merger say "Hoya corporation" at the bottom - now it's time for Ricoh to take its place!

Thank you Adam (seriously), I probably would not have been able to sleep tonight with that question in my head
Ricoh? isn't that the sound a frog makes? I read that they signed the papers in July or something like that.
