I have done reviews and testing of the product with friends, family and the target market. This is what I am basing the changes on.
I am still going back and forth on patenting right away. I know we will be making changes in the first couple of months and would like to see the prototypes before I am dead set on the design.
I will be speaking to my lawyer about this.
I don`t think it is patent infringement when a company is manufacturing a product and in essence "private labeling" it to you. They own the molds so they must own the patent, if they have one.
I will probably have my own molds created, so in this case we would look at patenting.
