"Due to patent licensing and conflicts between such patent licenses and the 
licenses of application source code..."

Why is this discussion continuing? Did I not say it was a licensing issue? I

licenses" just like I stated in my original message.

Please, end of discussion.  And please, stop bashing USA.
