Legal Question

Asked on: 12/07/12, 4:48 pm

Hello. I have a couple of patent/licensing questions. I recently restored an old BMX bike and was unable to find a small plastic part on the handlebars. I got the part made/replicated by a local plastic company. Would it be illegal for me to sell additional copies of that part?

Also, I contacted the bike manufacturer and asked them the same question, without specifying the part. They sent me a licensing application to further explain my plans, but Iím a bit concerned that they may take my idea and start reproducing and selling the part themselves. Should I be concerned with them doing that?

Thank you.
