This format is an experiment.
Gebrauchsmusters were and are a kind of short-term lightweight patent available in DE and AT at least. They are officially certified but with no examination.
This one is has the term Lenkbares Luftschiff (Steerable airship) in its title or description. It's for G. A. Rossler or Roessler. We can digitize or translate it later. For now this is a placeholder.
We could put a patent template here, or a publication template. Or a variant of those templates. Not sure what's appropriate. This page is an experiment.
It makes sense to track these. They show aero activity, with names and topics associated with it. That will help illuminate other things, like the biographies of the relevant people, and the terms in use, and the activity associated with various technologies.
What criteria did the project have to clear to get this official certification? What's the form like? What protection did it give? We are gathering info.
- Comment: I think it makes sense to use the patent template rather than re-invent the wheel, since nearly all of the same data is used. (Or, rather, the patent template contains all the data we need for Gebrauchsmuster.) However, using this format does create some room for confusion where none existed before, including the possibility of a patent number being confused with a Gbm. number. One possible solution could be prefixing G before the number in the template... LTA (talk) 20:14, April 22, 2019 (UTC)
- Another consideration is that we want to be able to easily differentiate between Gebrauchsmuster and Patents in the template data. This could be accomplished with some notation within the existing patent template, or by a small tweak to it. LTA (talk) 15:04, April 23, 2019 (UTC)
- Very good. We have little info on the Gbms, so most of the patent template would be blank. A prefix of G on the number is good. That might do the trick. Or, yes, an additional field so everything else is the same but it has a G or something to mark this type. Or maybe the country would be DEG or ATG to make reports easy? I am ruminating. I'm collecting info on these. It's odd to learn about them so late in the game. One person said "oh, those are common." Another said "it can mean trademark, but that doesn't match the examples you are showing me." Need to learn more. For now it is okay to use an awkward convention like the one on this page, and we'll inch forward. Thank you for discovering these. Wikidata and Wikipedia are a little confused about them too.
