I have no idea if this has been posted or asked before, but first I will start by describing what this post is about.
I have no idea how patents work as far as filing one and I don't know if when a patent expires for, say, Coca-Cola, if the same company can file the exact same patent once the original expires.
With that said, the V1 directional radar detection technology patent was filed on February 25, 1991, and accepted/issued in January 21, 1992. I also know that a usual patent expires on it's 20th birthday.
Now, who do you think will be the first company to re-patent this technology? Me, being a Whistler fan, vote for and wish that it's Whistler. Everyone else has a "21st Century innovation", Beltronics/Escort have the GPS, and so does Cobra, so in all fairness, hopefully Whistler would get it.
Thanks for reading, and I can't wait to see the poll results.
