Wide open was my take too. Way to broad, so I sure it will
get challenged as soon as somebody tries to enforce it. The
real danger is if somebody like Microsoft buys the patent,
then there is trouble against small companies who innovate.

I find this most disturbing. America is owned by lawyers and
crooks, in the disguise of corporation. Europe was the last
bastion of anti-imperialism........?
No wonder most startups build their products in S. America
or Asia and just import them to the US....... and
politicians are looking for jobs?
Fix the stupid patent system....
