: So the offshoot of the conference (or however it was called)
: is that Microsoft has announced an IE update which theoretically
: does not violate the patent, but with two workarounds to violate
: the patent anyway. Apple's and Macromedia's role consists of
: repeating this information.
: What is going on?

I think you need to do some more reading on the issue. Please look into it a
bit, because you've posted a couple of brash statements about how things are
"silly", and how things are still violating patents, and so forth. But you
pretty much have no, acceptable, alternative and you're wrong on some of the
technical details.

I'm happy to discuss the topic, but preferably at a more informed level.

: I doubt whether there are hundreds of them. Besides,
: only Microsoft has actually done something.

Um, you don't actually know the size of development teams that Microsoft
has, do you? Add to that the marketing people, the lawyers. Add to that
people from the other organisations.
