This is funny, should have been happy with what they had.

Serves them right for wasting money on something that wasn't needed.

Doesn't your browser have a popup blocker - most do? Or perhaps it just needs activating? Take a look in your settings,

Lurking somewhere on the British statute book is a measure that allows the government to override and/or ignore patent issues on weapons and other defence equipment. Although it is normally only used in time of war or other national emergency (it was employed in WW1 and WW2) it could in theory be applied anytime. I know that the USA had something similar in WW1 (for example patent rights on self sealing fuel tanks were suppressed) but perhaps this has lapsed or been repealed (or forgotten).

Concomitant with the British legislation was an Inventions Board that awarded compensation to those that it regarded as the real inventors after the dust had settled - they were very busy in 1919 and 1946

Now if only British law were involved here...

U.S. Law relative to patent infringement by government contractors. Generally the contractor needs permission from the government prior to contract award.

The unauthorized use of patents – what is called “patent infringement” in the private sector -- is governed by special rules when it happens in connection with a Government contract. To a large extent, these rules permit the U.S. Government and its contractors to “infringe” valid patents. The patent owner can’t directly sue the unauthorized user of its patent. The patent owner can’t obtain an injunction to prevent the infringement. A private company that infringes a patent in performing a U.S. Government contract may have a complete defense to a suit brought against it for patent infringement. That does not mean that the patent owner is without a remedy. Instead, the patent owner has the right to bring a lawsuit against the United States in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. This article briefly addresses some of the rules that apply to this special breed of patent claims........................

Thus, the Government may authorize one of its contractors to infringe another company’s patent when performing under a Government contract, and that infringing contractor may cite the Government’s direction as an affirmative defense to liability[8] and obtain summary judgment dismissing it from a lawsuit.[9] In these cases, a patent owner that sues the private party infringer is wasting its time. Instead, the owner needs to properly exercise its rights against the Government.
