Looking at this software patent mess, one would expect software to be more expensive in the US, not the other way around. No idea seems to be too simple for a patent.

That said, it's always nice to see pro software patent companies like Microsoft being struck by suits like these: one hopes they'll wake up someday.

Is Autodesk a litigative company? Apart from the suit vs. Open Design Alliance, I don't think that I've heard anything?

For now, software patents are not enforcable in the EU, but check out some scary patents on http://webshop.ffii.org/


Z4 better consider suing BMW as well. They use the Z4 name for one of their models...
