The holding in Lexmark International, Inc. v. Static Control Components,
Inc., 387 F.3d 522 (6th Cir. 2004) unequivocally demonstrates that a
copyright license may not control source code that implements a step in
a process patent under U.S. law.

The above result may not be true in non-U.S. jurisdictions but the
obvious deception by the vocal supporters of the Free Software
Foundation concerning the GPL3 and U.S. patents destroys any credibility
they might have when complaining about Microsoft's hegemony.

GPL supporters and not Microsoft are truly the culprits in the FUD wars
concerning patents and computer programming. Their efforts amount to
nothing more than one great SPAM conspiracy in the open source world.
Sadly, it amazing how many people like Bruce Perens spew GPL3 nonsense
concerning patents.
