Partially true for us. We do do patent searches to make sure we aren't
doing anything blatently stupid.

I do agree with you 100% that it is impossible to ship any software that
does not infringe on some patent. It's a big point of contention in
contract negotiations because everyone wants you to warrant that your
software doesn't infringe and indemnify them if it does.
