Does my iphone 5 charging cable infringe on copyright or patents
Hello, I have started to sell an external cell phone battery charger on Amazon, and ended up getting in the package a charging cord and 5 adapters. (From China)
No other top sellers are selling this little charging cord and adapter package. (maybe that is a big clue.)
I would like to find out if the adapters do violate anything. I was concerned with just the iphone 5 adapter, but I guess I should find out about all of them, well the 8 pin connector (iphone 5), 30 pin connector (iphone 3&4) and the Nokia connector.
I don't know how long research would take on each one, so if we agreed on terms I would want to start with the 8 pin connector.
8 pin connector is also known as the lightning connector.
I am not claiming it to be a lightning cable anywhere, I cut the adapter open and it seems to just have 2 wires for charging and do not think the circuitry is the same, just a couple small chips on circuit board.
I know that there is a certification companies can get to make iphone stuff, MFi certification, which then can be labeled as 'made for iphone, ipad..'.)
These are not...
Thanks for reading my little story, and hope you can help. Enclosed picture of 5 adapters and cable. 8 pin adapter, upper left.
A cost estimate would be great.
