    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.
