I would not support a company that rips off inventors.
Of course consumers should care about such things.
(I have no idea where WW stands in all this ... but patents are a good thing!)
It's not that at all, patents are a good thing. FYI, here's the info on the WW designs from the source:
"Regarding the '06 Rapture, there are no features which are patentable - all have been done in many ways in the past. We have only applied a unique blend to commonly practiced kite-design techniques. The original patent also does not apply to the Rapture (or other Windwing kites) as the canopy geometry is not part of a spherical surface which is a primary claim of this patent."
So there you go. "Guest" users - please help this forum by refraining from posting erroneous info promote your commercial agenda.
