So. Microsoft cannot sell Word in the U.S., starting 60 days from now! Obviously this will be over-turned, but it shows how broken the U.S. Patent system is. In addition, though, it shows just how broken the U.S. legal system is. Eastern Texas obviously should have no jurisdiction in this case. Well, the Patent Trolls pick out some small software company (even if it is no longer in existence) in eastern Texas to add to the suit so they can get the case heard there. What nonsense!

Help, my country is going nuts! Somebody helps us. Maybe St. Obama can save the day!

Yes. it's sad. I guess the proper way for you guys to solve this is to talk to your congressmen or something?

It does seem to be a mess. Someday they will figure it out, I hope.
