It may be Hooey, but the one computer law class I took helped me understand that legal doesn't have anything to do with right/wrong or logical. Patents are just a license to sue to protect your patent rights. In addition: We don't have a legal system. We have a system of laws. If we are lucky we get legal to approximate 'right'. ... If you really want to effect things, the laws need to be changed. The ruling about software not being patentable, is a bureaucratic issue. It can be overturned. But it takes lots of $$ to do that.
