Itís the version 1 patent that has expired, the current hobie drive still is protected from being copied for some time..   remember the mirage drive has been out now for over 20 years.

Wow contravesy!

Consumers always win when there is more competition. 

It will be interesting to see how hobie reacts.

Did I read somewhere that the patent on the hobie drive is expiring at sometime?  I saw this on YouTube.
