Patent Infrigment

I'd like to have a part from a wrist watch duplicated on a belt buckle. Of course the replica would be non working.  Would there still be a problem with patent infrigment?
Thanks, Georgie

It's possible.  It depends on the language of the patent claims, or perhaps the figures if design patents are involved.

The design of the part is unique and no doubt covered under the patent of the entire watch. Even so it's not like we're copying a part to use in another watch we're having the part dublicated in a much bigger size to use as a decoration for a belt buckle. It's not like we're copying something you actually see on another item that helps sell that item.

Well, again, it all depends on what the patent(s) in question says.  Be careful about assuming that you are in the clear just because your product is intended to be wrapped around the waist instead of around the wrist.  Smiley
Since I don't know any details about your particular situation, I couldn't say one way or the other whether you are clear of any patent(s).  I would suggest you talk it over with a good patent attorney or agent.
