    I have an idea to sell a product, but its a hybird of two products. What are the legality of selling something like this.

    I mean I'm not going to glue two branded products together lol but you get the idea, I am going to use two idea/concepts into one product.

    let say for instance a duck call with a laser or flashlight on it just a random example.

    I think you can sell most things in this way.
    the main areas you could have an issue are:

    licencing - some products, especially software are sold with a licence agreement, and this isn't always transferable.

    Branding - I think you would definitely face an issue if you are using someone else's name to sell your service.

    Licensing - I seen several different variants of this product I want to hybird with teh other and same with the other piece so I think it not really a issue there IMO obviously I am going to have to do my research and get a professional opinion on it before i move to prototype etc etc.

    Branding - I will never use another person brand to try and profit off, this hybird will be competely my brand.


    just gotta to do more research, as I know absolutely nothing in this field.

    Changing a product a little here and there can be a problem but combining two different products into one - I don't see any problem in that.. but remember to get an expert opinion on this as this is a legal matter.

    Most "products" are born this way anyway. You're good.

    See if the thing sells first, worry about the legalities later.
    If it doesn't sell, you don't have to worry about if there are issues.

    Some dude invented glow in the dark duct tape, duct tape was already a product and so was glow in the dark material, but he combined them.

    If you want to attack something more profitable while still combining products.. look into free trials of "enlargement pills" the people who make money off directing people to these products make HUGEEEE money. gl
