Following up on myself: The '662 patent talks about using hashes to deduplicate data and was filed in December 2003. Monotone was first released in April 2003 and I'm pretty sure it used SHA1 to identify data.
The '662 patent talks about data deduplication, but surely if git infringes then so would Monotone have, and if Monotone does not then surely git does not?
