Now that's what I call cognitive dissonance.  "Basketball hooligans"; what a
hilarious concept!  Almost as funny as the US Patent Office.

But is BT's claim any more ridiculous than many other patently absurd claims
of a similar nature?  E.g. Microsoft's stylesheet patent, Amazon's
one-click, etc. etc.  In the face of such blatant legal stupidity (or is
"chicanery" more accurate?), does it not become the honest citizen's
responsibility to break the law?
