in the link i put up it describes the burden put on the government to stop other businesses for selling things that are patented. a lot of money and time.
from talking to people about getting my hub motors patented it seems despite the seemingly small cost of 400$ to apply for one the costs go on and on. I decided not to bother. I’m covered at least to a certain degree in that the manufacturer that makes them is legally required not to sell my products to others. Anyone could reverse engineer and copy the dimensions detail for detail but no one else sells the same size stators so copying the design exactly is pointless. I do plan on selling them super cheap though to stop would-be copiers.
I dont like patents. they slow down progress. I’m a socialist though. And they create too much bureaucracy. speaking of…I’ve been sub teaching and the school system is such a monster…I havent done a spot of work in days but am getting paid sitting at this desk and that’s why I’m all over this site!!!
