you're quite naive, there's more to it than software patents ;-)

Here are non-US countries with granted patents, i'm kind of expecting you are living in one of those:

Europe: Germany, France, UK, Finland, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Bulgaria, Liechtenstein, Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Hungary, Ireland, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Portugal, Slovenia
Asia: Japan, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, India
Americas: Canada, Mexico
Australia

And I live in neither! Patent's in my country are very much explicitly forbidden. Click on my name to see where I live.
PS: Oh, and yeah. Since the my country is quite small and I personally know the PM, previous PM, head of the patent office and some important politicians(it's not that unusual in my country), I can pretty much be sure that software patents will never be legalised.

Though I am sure that hardware encoders and decoders are very much covered by patents. Software is 100% not.
