Well I am not too sure about that...
I would guess and prefer that the patent is used to ensure that no one else patents this and sues fic/openmoko. Otherwise it would not be a really free thing.. Am I right?
So what is this defence tactic now Sean? Or do you have to figure out that as well? Hope you find a solution which is good in the FOSS sense like you often do! Just to say it ones more: you do a great job at FIC/OM!
