Declaring your freedom to use DIY ideas
When I publish original patentable ideas on these pages without patent,
public domain. I intend that you can use them freely. If at
I patent an idea and desire to restrict it, I will say so explicitly in
the affected articles. Accidental omission however will not
forfeit my rights. In the event that these ideas
coincide with the patents of others, my understanding is that you can
prototype patented ideas for your own personal use. This is the
freedom of do-it-yourself. If you
use any of these ideas commercially, you must determine if any
conflicting patent exists before proceeding according to the law.
This statement is not meant to be final legal advice, refer to a
lawyer for any real legal concerns.
