The scope of patent law isn't restricted to manufacturers, it covers any use of the invention. So end users could very well be sued.


Depends on the country you're in: in the Netherlands, patent protection only applies to using the invention 'in or for a company' (rijksoctrooiwet 1910 art 30), not to purely personal use.
