No I'm not, because without a patent there is no guarantee of monetary compensation for your idea. What is the point of even bothering to develop a product if anyone can just take your idea and reproduce it without paying you a cent? I don't believe so, but even if it did, it doesn't matter. The Apogee Drive came out in 2007, these patents were filed for in 2004/2005, the drawings in the patent are Socket 478 based just to give you an idea how old these patents are. The issue is that the patents, even though they were filed for back in 2004/5, were only approved in 2012. So Asetek didn't really have the ability to enforce them until they were approved, which is why all these other companies were allowed to freely copy the idea. This isn't really Asetek's fault, it is the patent office's fault. But now that the patents are approved, Asetek can start enforcing them. These companies had to know this day was coming. And all they have to do is pay Asetek licensing fees to use the technology, and there are laws that say Asetek has to offer reasonable licensing fees to companies that want to license their technology.
