Does anybody else here worry about potential liability for patent 
infringement? IE, Amazon's One-Click, the gif patent, eBay's pending 
patent on thumbnail galleries - yes indeed, check it out: 

I've been trying to come up with wording for a clause in my contracts 
to transfer potential liability to the client that doesn't read like 
I'm willfully violating a patent (er, wait - I am!)

Does anybody have such a clause? Would appreciate it if it could be 
posted to list if so.
