Be careful on your explanation of it being legal to copy furniture. There are parts of what you are saying that are false or, in the very least, misleading.

You failed to clarify the extent of a design patent. You are right about the copyright though, but that wasn’t created to protect furniture design in the first place so of course it wouldn’t protect it.

Also, I think the overall design of a piece of furniture could be deemed art as well… which brings up whole other issues.

Just giving you some feedback.

Appreciate that, Doss, I was just quoting what a lawyer said on CustomMade regarding this issue. No, you can’t buy the plans, copy them and sell them. But you can build the project from those plans, and sell them, according to the counselor.

Right, I’m just saying that it’s not the full story and won’t necessarily get you in the right in all cases.

Your article was informative to some who have no clue about any of that though. It clarifies some of the questions that a lot of people will have. I was just adding to be careful with what you say because some people may take it as a “green light.”

Even though you are not a lawyer and don’t claim to be, some people will read it on the internet and take it as law.

I guess anybody can sue for anything, sadly. I just don’t know how someone could expect that you can buy the plans, build it, and NEVER be able to sell it. Just doesn’t seem right, but….

I suppose you could change one part of the project, and then you’d be free and clear? Who knows…

Yeah, it is sad. I think you’re right about most plans though. I don’t think you’ll run into much resistance from a plan seller about you selling furniture made from their plans. I was just saying that some of your article is worded in such a way that people may think they can copy photographs or other representations of furniture as well and be in the clear.

I checked out your blog, nicely laid out and well written, sadly you closed the comments. On the apps and pricing blogs I had a couple of suggestions that might have rounded off or added additional good info to your articles.

I realize that if you keep the comments open you open yourself to some discussion and having to “moderate” but your blog will be more active and informative if you allow your readers to participate. My intentio was to post a couple of more apps you might have liked and a tip on pricing you might have found useful, but alas, the “comments are closed”... :-(

And by the way, CustomMade is working out for me, so far, one sale, and only been there a week.

Also, they don’t charge a flat fee anymore. You list for free and they take 10%. Not great, but not that bad either.

You don’t care to have anyone question your ethics on your blogs, so you just delete them?
