It becomes a speed trap in a one highway 
town.  It isn't an issue of a responsibility 
to break it, but the lack of an alternate 
route to avoid it.

We have a major problem.  Our court systems 
aren't technically sharp enough to process 
these claims.  A new breed of CS lawyer is 
emerging as a result.  We have to watch this 
while the precedents are established, but 
don't neglect keeping the press both digital 
and print fully informed.

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?
