No need to apologise; thanks for yet another helpful response, AndyJ. I think they may well be aware of all the various kinds of design rights, etc., because they are a 'proper' designer and their item has been available in posh, well-known places. They (or their lawyers) will know a lot more than m...

Thanks again, AndyJ, for the helpful reply. OK, so there's no guarantee of being sued, but if I decide that I would concede to any challenge made, would there any possibility of any situation arising in which I would have to pay any costs? What I am trying to say is that would there always be a chan...

Hi AndyJ. In short, what do I need to do (or not do) to make 100% sure that there is no way I could be sued by anyone or be in any position where I could incur any expenses such as legal fees, etc.? I CANNOT afford to have to pay anything to anyone at the moment and would rather give up the whole id...

Thanks again, AndyJ. I think I now understand the "must be original" issue better with regards to patents. I'll understand if this is not the correct place to ask my next question, but I'll go ahead and ask just in case you may have come across relevant knowledge whilst working within your...

Hi AndyJ. When you say that we can discount copyright or patents, do you mean that I would not be breaching these or do you mean that I wouldn't need to copyright or patent my design? Or both?
