delayed its implantation in the US because of a software patent issue.
Another company I worked in had frozen an interesting project because of a
patent issue that effectively forbid them from distributing a product before
the lengthy legal process ends. Doers and makers are hindered by these
issues. Like I'm said, I'm tired of making patches. I'll try to address the
core issues.
