Donít jump to conclusions yet.
I did find the ArmCross a little clunky. It is over built in some areas and under built in others.
The reverse draw concept really belongs to Leonard DiVinci. Letís give credit where credit is due. Look at he attached picture. The drawing hanging on the wall with the engineered concept belongs to DiVinci. So there are bows and crossbows then Allen invents the compound bow. One would have to assume that putting a compound bow on an established and documented concept is normal progression would they? In other words if I had invented the wheel and used it on a wheel barrel and then you put it on a cart should you get a patent for putting wheels on a cart?
Todayís US Patent office sucks and passes patents out like water. They just donít do their job and leave all the issues to courts that have no idea what they are talking about. We really need a professional patent court which is run and ruled by judges that really understand patent law. In countries like the UK when you bring suit against someone youíre responsible for damages and court cost and the other party's legal fees if you lose. Here in America right or wrong the guy with the deeper pockets usually wins as he can bankrupt the small guy in legal fees well before a court and jury ever get to hear the case. Want to fight or protect your patent? Show up with at least 100 grand. At the end of the day how do you ever recover that? That is money that could have been spent of marketing or development. It is a tough road.

Patent's are a US thing, they mean nothing anyplace but here.
No, you can pay extra for an international patent. I've been through the patent process and it wasn't as easy as xbow guy says for me. I wish! I had to have a patent search done, then describe how mine was a different so I wasn't encroaching on anothers patent. Had to submit drawings, legal descriptions with even the most minute details and such as well, so mine could be defended in the future with all details. Costly though to go through the process ( paying all the various lawyers) and didn't quite get any return so far. I didn't do the international patent and one company that is BIG is off shore so sweating that one! That means, they can manufacter and sell my product and design in any country other than the USA. Mine is a Utility patent, not a design patent which is a stronger patent. Design patents are easier to get around if that helps you understand, and don't cost as much.

But he didn't patent it in the US nor do I believe he will file a suit based on his prior art! LOL!
