Looks like CVN is a patent holder too.

Nice find. Wonder why they waited about 2 years to file it.

Very interesting...and it runs out in late February of 2020, so after that everyone can make their own!

By then I'd have to upgrade my eScape app to 5D.

Yes, which is why you often see the words "patent pending" on new items. Getting a patent is a fairly involved process. I've worked for companies that had departments that did nothing but prepare patents, and monitor other company's patents or potential infringements.

Re: Patent No. US D536,391

So I was looking at my old BGG post and noticed on the Google result for patent US2006043674 as of today (2019-05-15), the Application status is Abandoned! I'm no legal expert, but I think it is time for @Craig Van Ness to jump on this as it is his patent and is should be his right to renew, so he can make more heroscape-compatible terrain with Soaring Rhino.

Re: Patent No. US D536,391

No, I just looked yesterday. I guess that last line on Google patent just is always today. Some searching found these other patents and applications, and it looks they are not set to expire until 2020-11-28 & 2021-02-06:
USD532832
USD536390S1
US29/212,021
US29/260,198
US10/925,513
D536,391
D536,392

That's more in line with the dates that I thought mattered. Now I regret reaching out to him privately, after seeing the earlier posts. . .
