Following on from
last week's story,
a court in Berlin has overturned
the injunction against Sandisk, allowing them to put their MP3-players back on display for the end of the IFA electronics show in Berlin.
Interestingly, they won it on the grounds that their implementation does not infringe on the patented methods. Would their legal argument be applicable in the US, or do different patents apply? If so, does this have implications for free software? The GNU website currently says that 'In the US and some other countries, free software for MP3 is impossible'.

If a subordinate asks you a pertinent question, look at him as if he had
lost his senses. When he looks down, paraphrase the question back at him.
