    I recall at one point a bunch of big corporations agreed to use their patent portfolio as a deterrent. Other than MS suing some gps manufacturer, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
    I've done some reading on Bilski, but I cant quite grasp what the implications are. I'm not a patent lawyer and unfortunately I dont understand much of the terminology being thrown around in the blogs. Is there an english interpretation in laymans terms that you can point me to?
