    My own biggest fan? :confused: Are you serious Andy? Since when should we be ashamed of our accomplishments? I thought it was a cool thing to share to show all that we have brought to the table for the industry. Especially when this list has been copied by so much of our competiton and claimed as their own. If you dont like the thread then close it and move on instead of trying to make me feel guilty or belittle me for being proud of where I work and who I work for. Nothing wrong or cheesy with having a little pride in your job.

    Copied? I'm sure Rockscapes and others would argue that Unique didn't design the Pulsar, Stellar, Starburst, etc. Those designs go way back.

    Does Unique even make the Sequencer? I have heard that it is made by a wholesale distributor and they sell them to Unique

    The point is you didn't invent the sequencer- you didn't even produce it when it came out.

    As far as "design" patents go, Unique must not be to interested in enforcing them:

    Pulsar-http://www.encorelandscapelighting.com/bl-28.html
    Stellar-http://www.encorelandscapelighting.com/bl-30.html
    Starburst-http://www.encorelandscapelighting.com/bl-31.html

    or do they already know the outcome if they tried?

    we are very interested in enforcing all of our patents..........it is a process that takes time and we deal with it one by one, everyone in violation gets dealt with accordingly.

    As for the Sequencer, we did have it produced for us so I dont get what your point is? we used another person to source and make the device. Was there someone else making, promoting, and selling the Sequencer before us? Didnt think so!
