What does "discriminate" mean, anyway? I think usually it means making
an arbitrary or unnecessary distinction. In this case the patent
infringement clause isn't there to punish patenteers; it's there to
protect the software and its other users, and therefore justified, I
A clause against child pornographers is unlikely to be justified in
this way, so I would prefer to separate these two cases.
