Actually WDP had that patent for about 5 years, before smart parts started suing people.because in the big sp vs dye vs wdp lawsuit wdp got the rights to re-flash boards via pc and such, so SP glue'd their boards up, but it got overturned and SP don't glue their boards up anymore. ..
now gimmie them 10 points bitch
The patent covers alot more than just a reprogrammable chip interface, but strangely Smart Parts only took action to avoid infringing the patent in areas that would also make them money.
So really, the crazy youtube guys opinion is valid.... and I demand at least two of your 10 points (or Ill sue )...
The only reason I can possibly think of, why WDPs patent was invalidated, and smart parts' retarded joke of a patent was not, is because WDP are a British Company and smart parts are a us company.
