T&T Govt. To Challenge U.S. Steelpan Patents

Tuesday, March 14, 2006

Trinidads government has hired a Washington D.C. law firm to explore a legal challenge to the 2002 patent awarded to U.S. firm HydroSteel LLC for manufacturing steel pans.
Legal Affairs Minister, Christine Kangaloo, confirmed the government was requesting a case re-examination by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Director. If for any reason the director rejects this action in the U.S., open courts will be explored.
The HydroSteel patent claims the use of technology that electronically scans an existing well-tuned pan then transfers the information to form a mould. The mould is incorporated into a hydroform press which is used to mass-produce identical steel pans. Minister Kangaloo said the process had already been documented and is in use for quite some time.
Minister Kangaloo said a committee is in place at the Intellectual Property Office of her Ministry, to advise government on effective legal measures to protect the steelpan.

To:Trini_Sugar@Canada!!!!
It simply means steeling the Rhythms of the Caribbean(Tinidad) and Mass-producing it for a profit. It will work for a while because as we know, Rhythms changes all the time, but then they would probably just change it in their computers and go at it again. It is like copying CD's and selling them. Next time you go to a show, look at the stickers at the side of the Drums and you will see where it is made and the company!

Tri Sugar
What they mean is that the Trinidad government employ an American Lawyer to probe the issue of companies in the States that are copying the Steel Drums Music Electronically without Trinidad permission. It means that they could make a million Steel Band just by putting the sound into a computer. You would then have millions of copies world wide selling, bad for Trinidad business. (Have you ever seen a movie they called "The Gremlins" where this animals touches water an make copies of it self, something like that.) So here we go > Music in Computer>Steel pan in a line>Some Robatic hand give the Pan some hard punch>Exact sound imprinted right a way. Some Tri would say it give the Pan a bitch lik.
