    These law suits and cases rarely work. More like a desire for publicity if you ask me.

    A waste of time IMO.

    Sounds like one of those enormous low detailed patents wich vagualy describe something in such a way that you might as well use it for anything wich remotely resembels it. Gotta love the US patent system.
