Hello everyone!

I am wondering if anyone knows how is it with patent for adirondack. I might be doing a few for sale and need to know how to do it proper. I live in Slovenia, so I need to know for patents here, does it have international patent or just for US?

Thank You everyone, who can provide some useful information!

Best Regards!
Gregor

Unless your design is so different from the thousands of other designs available online for free, I would say if someone copied yours, you should be honored and thank them for that.

I think you are concerned with copyright infringement, if I’m correct don’t worry just make them and sell them the people do it here all the time don’t know if you can use the name but the design is fair game.

A patent issued in 1905 has expired. Don’t worry about it. Anything done over 20 years ago, you can copy exactly. The patents are expired. That doesn’t mean that if you make 10000 of them, somebody might find a way to sue you anyway, but it’s extremely unlikely.

17 years for U.S.A. patents. I think European are 20 years.

Trademarks and copyrights are another issue. They are active much longer – used to be 70 years. I think they changed it for the Disney company when some of their old copyrights started expiring.
