GHI and copyright inffrigment


#1

We have about 6 new raw boards coming from overseas that been stuck at customs for a while. After many calls to the carrier we learned that they are on hold due of copyright infringements.

This cracks me up and I can’t wait to get a letter from customs to see what copyright! Calvin Klein?

At the same time, sorry guys, 6 new products are delayed for now :slight_smile: Once of them is a 4.3" gadgeteer display.


#2

The open source logo?


#3

Where overseas ? Asia ? Maybe it is a “reverse engineering” copyright :wink:


#4

Interesting. Please share once you figure it out.


#5

No, stuck here coming into the U.S.

This package has been driving me nuts I want these boards.


#6

Interesting idea. I haven’t heard anything about that case in a while. If they started blocking that at the border then everyone would be in a world of hurt.


#7

I got a buck that says Apple is behind this.


#8

I say that it’s apple as well. This makes a very interesting case; I didn’t know that US customs will hold hardware for copyright infringement. Might be a good time to warm up the lawyers just in case.


#9

#10

After calling customs 100 times, we gave up and reordered the boards as we can’t afford waiting…

… guess what showed up today?

No letters, nothing. I guess GHI is doing things legally :slight_smile: I am still wondering what made them suspicious!!! I would pay $100 to find out :open_mouth:


#15

I hope it wasn’t a huge loss :frowning:


#16

no loss, we just have double boards :slight_smile:


#17

Good!


#18

I already built some new boards before I went home for the night :slight_smile:
