You can’y make dark faced Meters with Yellow trim?

Fluke Vs Spark fun.

It’s just come to light that Sparkfun (this will effect other companies too) have just lost about $30,000 on Digital Multi Meters due to some obscure patient filed by Fluke. Under Patient 75934005 A company cannot use a DMM with a design that consists of the colors dark gray and yellow as applied to the goods. 

This will cause problems not only for Sparkfun (who will change there design to red unless someone else complains) and many of the other DMM companies.

You can follow the problem here – Fluke your killing us
