Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, "... a computer program ..." ? Nobody said "a computer

implementing the patent's claims are not eligible in the context of the
patent. Quit lyin' Hyman.

and would astonish the mega-corporations who hold both patents and
copyrights on their computer software. But holding astonishingly
false beliefs is another hallmark of the crank, so I suppose I
should not be surprised.
