You have found one which a court may agree it is infringed by Wmii, but what
about the other 100.000s software patents? How many may be seen as infringed
by Wmii? Who knows?

swpats are the most stupid thing in the IT world, please help killing them.

In Europe swpats are not allowed, but the European Patent Office (EPO) is
nevertheless granting them and pushing politicians to change the regulation.
