LXer: LXer 'classics': 101 patents Microsoft may infringe

Published at LXer:

A new database ("counterFUD") was released in 2005 at LXer showing patent numbers where parts of Microsoft might infringe upon. [Note: This is an old story, but I posted it again, since the topic is hot again, and included some new comments - hkwint ] "If people had understood how patents would be granted when most of today's ideas were invented, and had taken out patents, the industry would be at a complete standstill today." - Bill Gates, Challenges and Strategy Memo. 16 May 1991, almost forecasting 'patent armageddon'
