Why is it OK to Build a Clone of a Ibanez ,Or Boss, or DOD Pedal but it is not OK to Clone THIS Pedal???
Just wondering what ethics are involved in Cloneing a Mass Produced pedal compared a Pedal that isn"t Mass Produced (Like this Pedal)
It just seems that if it Is OK to clone the Latest Boss pedal than it should be OK to Clone ANY pedal (For personal Use)......
Just because this Guy only makes one Pedal and Hand Makes his enclosures doesn"t seem like a Very good reason to not Clone it ,At least there doesn"t see to be any compelling reason to Clone a Boss but not this pedal....
no need to, someone already has, about 300 times. its around the lounge somewhere...er, everywhere...
if someone posts a DS-1 schematic, and hundreds of people clone it, boss aint even gonna feel it. not even a pinch.
on the other hand, if someone posts a Klon schematic, and hundreds of people clone it, then Klon will be in pain...not to mention selling someone else's copywritten design is sorta illegal.
(trust me, there are many people waiting for it to come up, SPECIFICALLY to sell it...sure one guy wants it for personal use, but some others want it for resale value...say what you will in defense of whoever, but you know for sure someone wants to clone and sell it as soon as that schem is posted...that sorta what just happens around here, and we dont like it...)
but hey, what do i know? im going to go make some food. chile relleno/huevos mexicanos, anyone?
