    Someone should realy buy that patent from that stupid company (not a license). Can't IBM just step in and be like trololololol company bought, everybody fired...

    They spend... what?... one billion a year on Linux? Can't a couple of mils be used to trash those trolls?

    I don't think you can buy a company purely with marketing-Fu.
    Who owns the patent in question?
