The correl that I've purchased has been pretty inexpensive. I don't see why
it would be cheaper if Corning were paying royalties to the government for
each piece produced. They do pay tax on any profit they make from sales.

How many billion $ for how many dishes Their actual cost $100 each?
P.s. I've never heard of it. We use Pyrex -- probably not a govt.
P.p.s. This is another example of socialism for the corporations and
capitalism for the poor. The corps. get the patents free from tax
supported research, and we pay at inflated prices to buy the results.

But the spin-offs may not have been researched.
Corning came up with "correl ware" as a possible heat
sheilding. It did not work out for that, but I have alot of
correl plate and bowls. I don't think Corning would have
activiely searched for a new material to make dishware.
