I didn't know you created the 1800 layout.

I think the complaint is more about the right angle USB connector and the cut in the PCB which AFAIK no one did before TKC.

Be interesting to see if GH feels about PCBs like it does colorways.

I did not copy your design at all. I can see that they are pretty similar in form since they are made to fit one keyboard, and mine is just one out of the handful of options for this keyboard. It's like saying the DZ60 is a copy of the GH60, which is a copy of the Pok3r, etc. They're all just similar products designed to fit one case. Heck, Cherry could say you copied their design. Actually, the PCB hineybush made inspired me to design my own because it was a pain to get the panel-mount USB connector (hence the USB port sideways) to fit and I didn't like some design elements. I understand that you have to protect your intellectual property, but this just doesn't seem like the way to go about it.
