How hard could this patent be to get around? Parent claims are only 1,13,23 and 31. The first of those three talk about in some form right off the bat of "reproducing media program files". The media file isn't being reproduced. It's saved and played. Plus those seem to be centered on the player - which shouldn't be the problem of the podcaster right?

31 is the harder one but that looks like a playlist or like an RSS file of sorts. Check this file and see if there is something new in the list available.

Either that or I'm off base so just don't be a troll.... humor attempt failed...

Third party sounds good but in reality you're out numbered and playing against a stacked deck. The best way is to use the system against itself. Get people of like minds into the central committees (I believe that's what they are called). They control who gets put on the ballot for the primaries as endorsed. People who vote party line (which is A LOT) will blindly let vote them in at Primary time because they are endorsed. Then it's a numbers game come general election time. Getting on these committes isn't impossible either. You may be third party sure but chances are good that you share views with one of the major two parties. Bite your tounge and steer things with others helping in the right direction.
