Re: The Truth about the Pocket Diaper -great article
I have never understood why people are so worked up about the license fee. The fees to use a pattern such as very baby or cuddlebuns are at least $350 if not more and no one is boycotting either of these. I don't think Tereson is making money on the fees. I do agree that if she did not hold the patent, pocket diapers would have been snatched up by some retail giant, made overseas and sold for $7-8. No wahm could compete with that.
The patent will only be good for so long. After the patent expires, people will copyright their patterns. There are only so many ways to make a pocket diaper. Most wahm's making them will still have to answer to someone else and pay a cottage license fee.
