trademark laws
 
I've built an F5 amplifier and I'm working on a nicer chassis with a Front Panel Express front and back. My question is, can I put something
like "Pass F5 Class A" on the front? Would that be illegal or offend anyone?:confused:

If you mail Peter at PassLabs, a mix of threats, tears, and bad excuses, he just might be convinced to send you a couple of the PassDiy stickers. Those are real neat!

I don't know the american law. But in all european states you can do what you want. If you don't "bring it to the market"! Bringing to the market means to advertise it, to sell it or even to give it away to people that are unknown by you (if you give away more than 1-3 peaces).

I think the american law is almost the same.

Must be fairly international then, because that's waht a Notary told me out here (only the # of pieces depended on the item... 2-way radios were 5, power amps were 3...)

Cheers!

The idea of a trademark is really international (and almost independent of the political system). The number of pieces was only an estimation, take the term "a small number" here where "small" might depend on the value.

But in this case I would not hurt Mr. Pass' properties, no matter what the law says because we are here because of Nelsons geniality. And personally I think the passdiy logo is way more cool.

Have a nice day

Peter's not here any more, and Colin is busy elsewhere,
but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some stickers left.

In any case, we can make more.

:cool:

Papa said few times - write what you want , and put word "clone" .

I put in a vote for more 'PASSDIY' stickers!:):)

Peace,

Dave

Thanks for the inputs. I know selling F5's wouldn't be cool, but I don't plan on
selling anything. I may just put something more generic on the front panel in
case I decide to build one of the other pa designs. I would like to reuse the case
if I make something else and I didn't realize this hobby was so expensive!

Now you know why so many of the amps you see have wood cases.
