Would I have NP's lawyers nipping at my butt if I use the following for my diy amp?

I guess, if you are building only one for your home use, it won't be a problem, but if you think about production....

There were many other implementations of Pass logo presented on a forum already and used by people.

Your electricity compagny is the one that will be smiling at the end of the month.

@DIYMAN I think not if it's for home use and you don't start production

Default I am guessing "no"

Its your amp and you can put anything you want on it. That said, the trademark and trade dress laws are called into play in the event that you try to sell or dispose of your amp to someone else. That other person should not be confused as to the source of the amp due to your label. Given that you have adopted a label that could be "confusingly similar" to that of Mr. Pass, you should be careful to neither advertise nor pass off the amp as coming from Pass Labs. Make sure you are honest as to the source of the amp and you will be fine. So I really don't think its a problem as long as you brag that it came from you, not Pass.

The point is that as a company has the right to prevent consumer confusion as to the actual source of the items by preventing others from using its marks and trade dress. As long as you are not causing confusion as to the source, you should be ok.

Default one more thin

I would add that I am in no way affiliated with Pass Labs, I am just a new guy here on diyaudio.com.
