Seems I'll have to answer this one after all...

What's a software patent is not a copyright on code? How this moves
the discussion forward? Buzz off!

Did the courts ever allowed Microsoft to apply its "copyright" on

Rest assured I'm ignoring nothing but your nonsense. If Microsoft
asked for a patent  on "Autocorrecting text typed into a word
processing document", why should (formerly Sun), Oracle or Red Hat
care about this? As I explained it's only a high school exercise.
Microsoft has patented anything and everything it could think of. And
the stupid US patent office throws patents all over the place. It"s
when the patents come to court that the dealing is done.

These are the kind which Microsoft uses to pretend that Linux
infringes many of their patents. Who ever cared about this? Certainly
nopt Red Hat! I don't know how deep you are in India but you certainly
know this. You distribute Fedora as Omega with all the MS codecs
because the Indian government, though it receives subsidies from the
Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, rightfully doesn't give a shit
about software patents.

How come a Red Hat employee becomes so ignorant when it comes to
understanding patent issues?

Buzz off with your stupidities about copyright and patents. It doesn't
help you make a point. I really don't understand how come Red Hat
doesn't fire you on the spot.
