I really don’t get how I was using someone else’s trademark by simply explaining how they finish theirs. IMO it was simply using it for comparison.
Sorry you felt that way.
Sorry that a few of you felt that way.
I don’t get why because I used the name of a product means that I am using their trademark maliciously. Have none of you used images from Google to trace or copy for personal use? I’m sure a lot of you have used it to make money even. Just sayin’. I don’t get why this conversation went to legal conversation or trademark issues. It’s called DIY. I don’t get why people get butthurt and go down that route when I was just explaining how someone can get similar results to PG.
Do we all have to buy their stuff all of the time? Don’t get me wrong, I will buy PG for some projects, but I also have the ability with a full shop to make my own out of any lumber I buy. Why not be able to explain it to others on a forum that is a place to share comments and ideas so that people that don’t have any experience with wood can see how they (GF) are doing it with their product?
I say Kool-Aid because you guys might have well as clocked in for Glowforge’s legal team over your assumption and running with it. Might have read into it a bit deep don’t you think?
@Jules Don’t want to sound…mean, so to speak, but I think you haven’t encountered many people that don’t care about your feelings much, but I could care less that you find it personally offensive. Sorry buddy. Just don’t feel that way. So be offended all you want. Guess it’s just my type “A” personality. You’re not the first person that i’ve upset, nor the last. Too bad you took it that way on a stupid forum post. Take it with a grain of salt.
