Patent Avoidance Library and Hardware Hacking Site


Thread Starter

Hi! Quite by accident, I ran across this interesting material: Lots of ideas on how to avoid the whole issue of patenting if you have a patentable idea and wish to commercialize it, as well as horror stories and philosophy. This is on Don Lancaster's site. I don't know how many people are familiar with Don's works and writings, but he has been a long-time electronic experimenter and devotee. He has a lot of his books available for download on this site, and some of his articl es are quite germane to industrial automation. If you're interested in hacking around with hardware, take a look starting at his home page also ( Regards, Willy Smith Numatics Costa Rica
