Parent article: Novell, buyer's remorse, and the patent threat
The US situation really sucks -- I was under the impression that "use" of a patent was not infringement, and therefore end users were safe; I was writing a rant to complain about the parent comment, but the US code seems to say otherwise.
Except as otherwise provided in this title, whoever without authority makes, uses, offers to sell, or sells any patented invention, within the United States or imports into the United States any patented invention during the term of the patent therefor, infringes the patent.
I hope it is different in the EU.
