Why not treat code as pretty much the same thing as a book or song? seeing as code changes seemingly weekly, that would keep the trolls too busy filing new patents to worry about who is infringing on their 'old' patent by adding a comma or a pause, or a blue box instead of a grey one...

If Ford had been treated the way Apple is being treated, we'd all be driving Fords.
