That 'genius" in S. Carolina trying to sell holsters with my designs and a fancy story about his design skills offers like a jillion year "warranty".  Problem is, if he look ya in the face and lie about the design, then WHAT IS his "warranty" really worth?@! :rolleyes2:

Holy Easter thread, Batman!

I was out poking around your site and saw the downloadable patterns. I don't see any licensing or permissions statements on them, though.

If I download one of your patterns and make the item, are you OK if I sell the item? I don't know that I'll do it, but I'm happy to credit "Design by JLSLeather, hand-crafted by JHLeatherwood."

I've noticed that some designers are very free with their permissions ... and others, not so much.

JLs quit posting a while back you probably should contact him at his store site for permissions.

Got it - thanks. Was reading some of his blog posts and wondered if he had rage-quit.

It is hard to patent leather items as original as most items have been made before and just altered a bit, there are thousands of Wallet designs, Card holders, Belts, Pancake holsters, western holsters and so on, that none meet the invented part of applying for a patent or unique

The big companies do patent some items like the Birkin bag but generally its just a specific part of the design rather than say the basic bag

And unless I recall incorrectly, @JLSleather was very free with his designs but did appreciate being mentioned as opposed to complete intellectual theft. I could completely be thinking of someone else too. I miss the guy if I'm being honest. He's pretty opinionated but is also a solid leatherworking beast.

I agree, there isn't a darn thing wrong with being opinionated, His work is excellent as are his designs.

A couple of interesting folks in this thread who don’t hang around here anymore. @mikesc hasn’t posted since Spring. @robs456, you still around at all? I’d be curious to hear a follow up to this thread if so.
