I’ve been reading a lot about patent and trademark laws. They aren’t so clear-cut as you might think. And as another organization begin to reproduce and sell a design/utility patented product, suing for infringement can become tricky due to little details that make a big difference. For example, Crocs Inc., had to appeal a determination over their last law suit. They won the suit, arguing that the reproduction causes ‘market confusion’ no matter the minor details of the replicated design. Here’s the article in full detail, naming the organizations that were sued for patent infringement.

Tilda Crocs I recommend these Crocs as some healthcare organizations have banned employees from wearing shoes with holes in the front since it’s hazardous regarding the handle of syringes. Think possible needle stick. These are safe and stylish for the office.
