[Noisebridge-discuss] advice on PCB patents?

Make it public and open source (on Github, or wherever you like).  Then no one can patent it because you can prove "prior art".  (Well, with our inanely broken IP system, anything can be patented now-a-days, but, it wouldn't be upheld if you chose to fight it in court.)

hey all,

  I recently designed a project w/PCB layout with a fellow NB-er that i want to protect from being stolen.  I have *no* idea where to begin with this....any suggestions?  typical cost info would be helpful.

You're referring to copying as stealing on the noisebridge mailing list and then asking for advice on how to prevent copying?
