My company makes a good bit of money off something that was once patented. The patent is now expired, and we are allowed to make it. I don't know the whole history of it, but the only reason we don't patent our product is because it already had a patent, and it's now expired (and, of course, we didn't invent the basic technology but more of a method of producing them). I would bet there are *tons* of products that are sold now that used to be covered by patents.
