Outro absurdo decorrente d'um mundo que trata IP (propriedade intelectual) da mesma forma que outros ativos:

Eastman Kodak has won a lawsuit in which it claims that Sun's Java infringes several of the photography giant's patents. Kodak says the patents (which it bought from Wang Labs) cover one of Java's core techniques -- where an application "asks for help" from another application. If these patents apply to Sun's Java, why not .Net, too? If one bit of software can't call upon another without paying Kodak a royalty, perhaps all object-oriented programming infringes. And XML-based Web services. And regular old APIs. The entire IT industry might as well pack its bags and go home. This could be a textbook example of why software should not be patentable. Kodak is seeking $1 billion in damages from Sun, but David Berlind doesn't expect the company to be savoring this victory for very long.
