I desperately want the instructions for the vinyl album purses, can anyone help?
Evonne from Smithville, TX
They have purses made of everything! LOL
Here's the search for "record album purse":
Just to inform people, the original maker of the record purse holds a utility patent on them that covers several different styles. If you are making one for yourself, there is not a problem; but if you are producing them for sale, you are violating the patent rights and may find yourself with legal problems. The original may be found at recordpurse.com
Ken's information is incorrect. The patent holder to the original record album purse is bandinmyhand.com. You can find BandInMyHand's patent number's right on their site. If recordpurse.com has a patent, I'd love to see it because they sure aren't proud enough to display it.
You are incorrect, although band in my hand currently has a "design" patent for the record purse, there patent was filed three weeks after broken record designs "utility" patent was filed which includes this design, info is available at us patent office. Ken
First of all, if both companies claim to have a patent, then one is infringing on the other. Why then, are they letting each other continue? Isn't the original holder of the patent responsible for policing those in violation? Doesn't the original holder also have to file any legal complaints in the state & county where the violation is taking place? And then the original holder is only eligible for a percentage of the profits from the other. In that case, wouldn't it be almost too expensive to pursue? I would think most companies won't show large profits either. How do the companies that manufacture designer bags and other items get away with it? I would think that Gucci, and the others would have the resources to take on these little guys, and they don't seem to stop it, so how would a small purse company?
There are more than 1 patent on the"recordpurse" Each one is different enough from the others that patents were issued. Three that I know of. The patent states that if the item has a,b,c and d parts and you make one that's a,c and d (skipping the d part)or abc and e parts (again skipping a part plus adding one of your own)you are not infringing on the patents. The key is to drop at least one aspect of the patent. If something requires a washer and you can make a better product by not including it, you do not infringe.
