  • Pattern Copyrights

    If I use 1/2 of one 1/2 of another does that brake copyrights???
    Can I call this pattern mine???

    that is a heavy question.
    I guess it depends on how close to the original each copy is
    Most "new" ideas are based on concepts we have seen before.
    As an example say you were making a Black Forest Cuckoo clock
    There have been lots of designs made before, many look alike. If you were to copy an entire clock and change the character on thr front from a deer to a woodsman, I would say that was an infringement of the original copyright.
    If you took elements from several clocks and made a new design, you could call it your own.
    But thats just my opinion. I havent been in trouble with the law yet
    This is certainly a very hot topic here. I am sure you will get lots of opinions.

      I,as a consumer would say no,i wouldnt consider it a new pattern,and if i saw it labeled as such,would probably not purchase it.If i was a designer, I think I would be pretty upset with someone calling somthing of my design theirs,even if its only one part.Perhaps if you could get written approval from the designers who you are borrowing from,then it might be ethical,but as described in your post, I dont see it as right.

          After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

          At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

          I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
          Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
