If I made a yellow product - I wouldn't mind someone else making a yellow product - so no. Sparkfun has not copied anything except the color yellow.
I'm one of the lucky guys that has the Sparkfun grey/yellow here:
Anyways, I think it is totally ridiculous regarding "trade dress" on colors. If Chevy were to only manufacture blue cars from this day forward - does that mean that Ford or GMC cannot make a blue car??? People would think that is ridiculous. Likewise with multimeters. Color is the only resemblance between the Sparkfun and the Fluke. There are all kinds of colors for multimeters. There are lots of multimeters with yellow backing and grey faces such as : Lodestar, Vichy, Victor, Xiole, CEM that all look like the fluke - just google "yellow multimeter." It's just total nonsense. I feel like i'm on some alien world surrounded by morons.
No public wish lists :(
