I may have contributed the patent / trademark confusion with my earlier comment. The post was simply my attempt to describe why patents expire and trademarks don't.

They probably don't want to be monitoring the quality of parts made in small numbers by someone in his garage 6000 miles from Vicenza. So they can't really give their permission. What's sad is that they won't contract their usual supplier to produce the things. That's it for now, Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia
