I don't agree, you'll always have the threat of an abusing patent that claims 
that some algorithm you designed were "owned" by it.. Have you ever looked at 
the JPEG processing for example ? It is simply a fourier transform followed 
by an huffman compression... All well known, but still "owned" by an abusing 

Patents have to be beaten at their roots, or you won't run away from them..

Everyday is just a holiday,
I don't care what the crowd may say.
I live the life I love with you,
Having fun while they are feeling blue.
