Today I'm going to write an email to the patent office in Munich, Germany and ask if there's any "cheap" method to have this checked.
Your offer is really great! I know that there might be some traders who might steel my idea.. But I'd love to use your stand as hookup point, actually.
Trading partners would be awesome. They could help out with the money ;)
A magazine review would be more than a dream.. I will get back to it :)
david, I know enough people to help you on your way, but checking for patent infringement is absolutely critical first step stuff. Making something for your own use is one thing, marketing a product is a whole 'nuther bucket of shit you don't want to get wrong.
Checking out the patent description should be free, as it's a public access document. Get on it, & I mean NOW!!
