You are quoting from the "description" section, which is usually fluff.

The "Claims" section sets out the true patent rights.

Now, the claims in this patent may also be insanely overbroad. I don't know. I haven't read them.

I'm just saying that if you want to point out how insanely overbroad a patent is, be sure to quote from the "claims."
