I think that Rob M. has hit it on the head. I think that if you are going to make something that I designed for a profit then that is wrong. Also there is a hugh difference between being inspired by Frank Loyd wright or Same Maloof and simply just ripping off an idea or design. I think Mr. Maloofs rockers have to be one of the most copied designs out there. There are some many woodworkers out there that are just making his rocker and putting there names on them. I think that is wrong. If you give the credit where it is due, then that is a different story.

I think the biggest problem is for one person to prove that any certain design is completly theirs. And then trying to foght that in court would cost more money than it is worth.

Half the fun of making furniture for me at least is designing it myself. There’s nothing better than seeing your own ideas come to life. Designing is not that hard, believe me if I can do it anyone can.
