"Yeah, normally I'd be all over this like Cory Doctorow over a commercially-appropriated Etsy steampunk accessory... That's pretty funny. When I first read this story, one of my first thoughts was "I bet this ends up on BB, spun as some kind of 'über-cool-makers-vs-evil-corporate-giant' rage-on"."
What can I do if I think someone copied my idea submission or is infringing my IP?
Also, if this technology has been available since before the First World War, why aren't all dustpans like this?!

That, the meme ready custom t shirts, the fact that OXO mentioned how many friends Quirky has on facebook, and the fact that neither Quirky nor OXO didn't just stfu and call their lawyers have led me to believe they are engaged in some sort of Andy Kaufmanesque corporate performance art.
Exactly, it is by definition a stunt on Quirky's part. Why is OXO giving them a wider audience by responding publicly, can't they seek some kind of injunction to have the billboard removed, if they even wanted to do anything at all?
Er, no. For starters, they appear to understand the subject pretty well, which is generally not the case of the anti-patent crowd.
