Steel Armor & Target Systems
We strongly encourage any individual or company considering an attempt to duplicate one of our protected designs to find an alternative, OR contact our office to discuss a mutually beneficial licensing agreement. Steel Ops will use all legal and monetary means necessary to find and eliminate potential infringements of our copyrights. Periodic searches for infringements are done to ensure our products are protected. Your respect for our designs and intellectual property is greatly appreciated. If you feel that a product or design that we are offering may conflict with a patent of your own, we would highly encourage you to contact our office first to discuss the issue. We are well aware of many of the patents within our industry and have thoroughly reviewed our products with our patent attorney's for compliance. There is a strong possibility that our product differs from yours sufficiently so as to eliminate infringement. We document cases where this differentiation might be too subtle to see or might not be listed in a product's description. We encourage you to save your time and attorney fees by contacting us directly so we can come to a quick and professional understanding. Thank you.
