LOL :)

 

They have a database for THAT???  Of course they do.  I'm sure it's meant to prevent folks from copying the design of an existing product and marketing it as their own.  There are many. many patents on all the different aspects of the various products involved in any industry, and cutthroat competition exists in every business, as does piracy.  Money is money after all.

 

Thanks for the laugh, jaclaz.

 

Cheers and Regards
