PHA would like to announce that it had already patented the oblong pigeon foot ring and now has exclusive rights throughout the Philippines to manufacture, distribute, sell, use or import the industrial design of the oblong pigeon foot ring.

PHA would like request all clubs to refrain from using oblong bands starting 2012, or else PHA will have to exercise its right.

What is the advantage of an oblong ring? I don't see any advantage of it except perhaps to hold the right assuming that someone has patented the circular pigeon ring.

Maybe in the Phillipines, but not here.

The oblong bands allow you to double band a bird and still be able to attach a chip for racing. The chip for racing would attached to the oblong band like ones pictured above. When you double band you cant put a racing chip on because both legs have bands on them and there's no room for a chip band. One band for the AU/IF band and the other is normally an ID band with the information like the name and phone # of the breeder. This will only affect those who like to double band their birds unless I'm missing something else that would be an advantage.

In any case, I'm sure everyone would be made aware of this through their club if this is legit and that PHA owns complete rights to this style of band.
