AFAIK, that idea was first invented (so to say) by "Christian H. 
Nadan, Director and Associate General Counsel, Sun Microsystems, 
Inc., and Adjunct Professor, University of California Berkeley 
Boalt Hall School of Law. This Article represents the views and 
analysis of the author alone, and not of Sun Microsystems, Inc. 
The author would like to thank Bill Lard, Mark Lemley, Sean Hogle 
and Michele Milnes Nadan for their generous assistance and 
thoughtful comments and suggestions."
