OR you could do a Google search for ".NET patent" which is free and takes 0.38 seconds.

http://www.google.com/search?q=.NET+patent

This would lead you to: http://news.com.com/2100-1001-984052.html -- ".Net patent could stifle standards effort"

The article links to a patent application entitled "Application program interface for network software platform", which seems reference such obscure things as System.Collections, System.Net.Sockets, System.Windows.Forms.

Well that was hard. Perhaps someone from Novell, preferable a patent lawyer, could address this patent application and how it affects Mono.
