That makes a lot of sense we all guessing and it could be a seriously misleading rumor as well, however, I'm no agent for Copeland or any political party in Trinidad, but that court matter was a direct attack on PNM/Manning initiatives by Anand Ramgoatlan

Tony Williams' design patent expired many years ago, design patents are granted for 14 years.  Also it is for a version of the spiderweb pan, not the modern 4ths and 5ths pan made today.  (A copy of the patent is available online.)  You could copyright a picture or drawing of the pan, but that gives you no protection from someone making the physical object.  What are they supposedly trademarking?  The word "pan"  I doubt it... 

I smell a scam or someone trying to stir up a pot for no good reason. 

PJJ; U can tune the 4ths& 5ths pans in round notes, square notes, make it out of wood , plastic, iron, or rubber, as long as the assesment order of notes is in the same position's, it belong's to SNSE and Williams, as he desigened it, and by the way it is also Copyrighted in the Library of Congress, that is how Brian Copeland got caught, we at S.N.S.E. are not fool's, only scam I smell is U...

To all who think they know, our Design Patent, Trademark, Moral rights, has not expired as copyright is automatic upon registration, and that will last until 70 years after the Author's death, the 4ths & 5ths technology has three (3) Author's, Anthony Williams the designer in 1949,  Herman (rock) Johnston 1961, and Leslie Michael Jordan 1963, the modifier  developers which will last 70 years after Jordans death,  the technology is also a collective work, that include all the stage side members 26 of us, which will last until 100 years from the date is was first published, blog Trinidad & Tobago Copyrigth Act (chapter) 82:80,  and as for SNSE we can do what ever we want with it, IT IS OUR'S, and as for Ms Sten she met and spoken to "TONY", so people look before U leap, we will sell 40% shares to whom ever we please, will keep control shares of 51% and give away 9% shares, 1% to Len "boogsie"  Sharpe, and 1% to Sherwin "fessor" Pierre, as they are the ones that's really tryto evolve the instrument, and not disrespecting or abusing it, chow for now...

Mr Cecil Hinkson; Ms Sten knows Anthony Williams very well, she has spoken to him, have U? and as for the  ownership of a Design Patent, Trademark, Moral and or Copyrights,  the Act clearly states that the Author is the person who creats it, and   his employer, in this case S.N.S.E, is usually the owner technological 4ths & 5ths, even though the Patent is named as such, see Copyright Act Law (Chapter 82:80) already posted on When Steel Talks,

Mr. Audain ; copy's of the Design Patent and the Copyright Act  Laws (Chapter 82:80) is already available on When Steel Talks...
