pissed off) as well, when an other person would get all the credits, but not you, as initial creator/inventor of that kind of hub...
and on you version i like the cutout for the GPIO header connector.
is you hub still available?
where is it available?
is it available for RPi Zero and RPi Zero W?
Do you have a patent?

If yes then you should employ a intellectual property lawyer to protect your patent.
If not, then, sorry, you don't have a leg to stand on.
May I ask you few questionsrobthez wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:41 pmHi digger,
The company, UUGear, have been making USB hub add-ons for the Raspberry Pi since at least 2014, here's an early model that uses stock photography that includes an original Model B: http://www.uugear.com/portfolio/high-sp ... pberry-pi/
They're proving tricky to locate with the rapid turnover of Pi products and webpages but I do recall other I/O add-ons and HATs for the Pi over the past several years that included USB hubs.
If you do have proof that UUGear stole this design from you then we will be more than happy to credit you - in fact in this case I'd personally pull the review from our blog! It would be very not cool.
May I ask why you've decided to contact us now over it? It appeared in our September 2016 issue and was posted to our blog the same month.
You're missing the point that is precisely what a patent protects you from. If you failed to take a patent then that's your loss and none of the MagPi magazine's business.digger72 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 7:17 pmI am talking about something different here. Many people have written about me being the first to bring any such product first in the market. What I would hate to see is MagiPi being labeled by others as at actively promoting plagiarized product. A clarification on the MagPi will help dispel this myth.
I again and again repeat - I am not here to complain anyone copying or not copying , patent blah blah .......DougieLawson wrote: ↑Sat Oct 21, 2017 12:26 am

They can't plagiarise a product. They can steal IP. But there's no protection against that without a patent.
The is fair enough response. The important thing is that the user should eventually get benefited by the end product whoever may have done it. That being said, I wanted to post few facts.robthez wrote: ↑Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:04 pmHonestly, there's no conspiracy here about purposefully ignoring your product - I've personally never heard of it until seeing this forum thread and the freelancer that wrote that article wouldn't have ignored it either. Apologies if you feel slighted by this. There's a LOT of Pi stuff that crosses our feeds and stuff inevitably falls through the cracks
