Question: If there is a patent on a product but no one is producing the product is there by any chance I could produce this product?

Patent link: http://www.google.com/patents/US20090008202

 Answer: Generally, one cannot infringe a patent application, only an issued patent. The link you provided was to a pending patent application. However, the pending application can give you an idea of what the issued patent claims might be. In turn, this can give you an idea of whether it might be OK to produce your product.
