Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

Even though the braking system has been invented it is still not public domain. How is it that an individual can successfully sue a company for not providing a device that they are not allowed to manufacture or use? If they built a brake on their brand of saw they would be sued, if they don't they are sued. Nice legal system. Should never have happened unless the brake was mandated by law, which cannot happen until the patent is up. This is indicative of the larger trend in our society of zero personal responsibility.
