I stated serval times that I am not a laywer and therefore can be
wrong, than Riu stated that we don't need laywers because his point is
obivious (to him).
Besides my personal opinion to this is "I don't give a damn about
software patents" (and they are void here anyway).
But unfortunatly the US laws suck, and that won't change anytime soon.
