Oh Shanter, I was trying sooooo hard not to reference that thread! It was very difficult as you can image. I surely didn't want to hijack this one and came awfully close! Tee hee, snort!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

I seen that Topsy Turvy video. What a great trick! And the poor kid I forced into manual labor was a girl....she is very crafty herself. Spent a few nights in a neighbors barn waiting on foaling. Then they installed a direct feed camera into the house. Not sure why we think we need to be there. The animals are probably much happier without us. These ladies act like it is the end of the world if they foal in a field! There was some weird message on my youtube page saying someone complained about a copyright violation, which is not why I deleted it (it was because I didn't look good...lol). But seriously, how is this a copyright violation. That is like saying building a chair is a violation because there are already chairs on the market. My design is nothing like the others out there...especially the one I am betting they thought I was copying.

How strange!  But now it makes me wonder if the other one is patented maybe?  Something you may want to look into, just in case icon_eek.gif

Jason, HELP! Put on your cape and come to the rescue. (Just looked at this, and I hope it  doesn't sound sarcastic. I sure don't mean it to.)

To infringe on a copyright your product must be almost identical. The key is in the writing of the claim. You cannot patent the idea of leveling a cake. You must patent specific claims....otherwise there would only be 1 type of everything on the market. There are vast differences in my design. The way my blade is adjusted, the fact that it will have 3 blades rather than 2. The fact that the best on the market can be adjusted to 1/8 of an inch whereas mine will only go to 1/4 of an inch. They are not marketed to the same crowd and will not be set in the same price ranges. Are the Fat Daddio and Wilton patent copies? No. Is the Ford and the Chevy copies? They both do the same thing, right? http://inventors.about.com/od/patentsbasics/a/PatentClaims.htm

 

" In analyzing each claim, each element of the claim must be contained in the infringing device in order to show literal patent infringement. If even one element of the claim is missing from the allegedly infringing device, there is no literal infringement."

 

There are many things others do to make the product easier to use that mine does not. Therefore I would not meet all of the claims in another brands patent application.

 

Additionally for there to be a patent infringement I must be selling the item. Which I am not currently doing., and will not be doing until I have applied for my own patent.

Yay :). Hope you do get around to posting another video on  your site, I'm sad I missed it!

I saw the video before you took it down and I really liked it. The only thing that I would have said was that it was a bit tall. But! You already addressed that. Looking forward to the updates...
