Please back up that claim!

All cases I know of in which patents are being enforced are not really
applicable to the debian case, because of reasons I've already written
down in the beginning of this thread.

It is really not constructive to bring this argument into the discussion
again and again without actually pointing to supporting evidence. Really.
