No, but I'm fairly confident it's not covered by this patent. If we start 
fearing patents for everything we do, then we do nothing. The plugin way is 
completely blocked and an alternative must be found. I believe intermixed 
XHTML+SVG is not only a superior replacement for a Flash plugin embedded in tag 
soup, it is also the only option not covered by this patent (apart from 
base64-encoding your Flash in the src parameter of your objects and praying that 
browsers understand data: URIs).
