[avr-gcc-list] [ot] Web patent trouble

Sorry to go way OT here. 

Web patents have gone amok!

PanIP is going after small companies that don't have the money to defend 
themselves. The key to PanIP's strategy is to keep it quiet and go after just a 
few people at a time. 

Sounds like a good reason to get the word out. 

If you own or operate an e-commerce web site then you need to know that a 
company in San Diego, Pangea Intellectual Properties (PanIP LLC) is suing 
companies all across the country. They claim that if you use graphical and 
textural information on a video screen for purposes of making a sale, then you 
are infringing on their patent. US Patent No 5,576,951. 

And if you accept information to conduct automatic financial transactions via a 
telephone line & video screen, you're infringing on their patent. US Patent No.
