Neodymium Rare-Earth Magnets Are Protected Intellectual Property

Neodymium magnet suppliers in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Southeast Asia are required by law* to pay a license fee to the current patent holders Hitachi Metal Ltd. (HML).  Previous patent holders were Sumitomo Special Metals Corp. & MQI.

All of the Neodymium magnets purchased from Amazing Magnets are in full compliance with the law.

* Warning: Unlicensed magnet manufacturers often utilize substandard raw materials and manufacturing methods which lead to product failures and inconsistent quality. Purchasing unlicensed neodymium magnets could result in a lawsuit from the current patent holder at a future date.
