    I have no sound

    I expect there will be loads of chess piece makers in Amritsar. Sadly I haven't been there since 1976.

    But what you are talking about here is nothing to do with IP, it is to do with a manufacturer not honouring a contract. That may well be the case and you would obviously have far greater insight into this that I would given your participation in the trade. Yes if someone contracts to manufacture exclusively for a retailer they should stick to that and not to is poor form. Similarly altering emails is not nice. I'm not trying to defend the business practice of a particular individual here but it amazes me when people refer to the copying of a set as theft or refer to the sets they create as a "design". The real design was registered in 1847 (1849?) as a ball for a pawn, a horses head for a knight etc on pedastals with long stems etc. Anything following this recipe is a Staunton set and indeed are called Staunton sets by the manufacturers and retailers. I appreciate the work done by HOS, OS and others in bringing these sets to the public and I'm sure they spend significant energy doing so. But spending a lot of energy doesn't/shouldn't necessarily mean that someone has a right in law or even morally to claim they have an exclusive on it.  (if they have a written contract with a particular manufacturer as you noted then that maker should only make for his client but even then that would not stop other manufacturers from copying it as best they can).

    it has EVERYTHING to do with claims of -

    In my opinion the best chess set manufacturer from Amritsar, India is Staunton Castle.

    They may be the best chess set manufacturer in the world!

     

    and that is what im referring to....calling staunton castle the best manufacturer in the World - this is easy for Uthor to say because he was part of the Frank Camaratta swindle deal, where he paid Staunton Castle to effectively nullify their exclusivity agreement with House of Staunton....

    There are many facets to being a manufacturer and being deceitful, disloyal, manipulative are not qualities most would look for in a supplier. I have myself initiated at least 7 designs with kind assistance from collectors on here, but Mandeep CEO at staunton castle started selling those exclusives direct to the public on ebay and a website he set up..... not only that, he and his team copied all my website data and duplicated it to their ebay sales platform....and their website. I had to involve internet authorities to have them remove my IP.  I could go on about this company Staunton Castle AKA Chess Creation whom I helped set up in 2006 ! and this is how I am repaid by these despots. 

     

    so yes, it is a personal blow when I see the likes of Uthors posts raving about a bunch of crooks. 

     

     

     

    I totally understand your points on the staunton design  audioq.

    Yes Templar they are manufacturer to resellers only and they keep to that promise.  

    When a manufacturer wholesales sets to chess purveyors then turns around and undercuts the market to me that is unethical. But that is my opinion only. I do know others are good with that because they can pick up sets for less and to them it doesn't matter what scruples the seller has.  To me that is everything.

    I know my opinion will be in the minority on this forum and it just that, my opinion.  But I Like dealing with the chess vendors as they fill a service that I enjoy.
