Woohoo! Two of my patents have been approved! The designs of both the Pillfold and the Pillpouch are now legally protected and cannot be copied without repercussion. Yippee!
In honor of the recently issued 14-year patents, I invite you to shop Sara Gorman's Pillbags between Monday, 1/21/13 through Sunday, 1/27/13, and enjoy a 14% discount. Just type in the word "PATENT" in the discount code during checkout.
So what does patent protection really mean? I tend to think of it like I do plaquenil. Taking plaquenil on a regular basis helps keep my disease activity at bay. It doesn't guarantee that I won't flare, but it certainly deters my symptoms from becoming active. With patent protection, there's no guarantee that no one will copy the design of my beloved pillbags, but ideally, it will deter them from trying. At least it should make those no-good forgery artists think twice!
Enjoy the sale, and don't forget to add the discount code!
