Re: Google must have paid big bucks...

If they'd have won this, lawyers would have sensed a payday.

"yes, this function, it takes a string, for example, "Hello World" and it prints it to the screen! We have the copyright on that!"

There'd not be a single api/function/method of coding that wouldn't have been torn apart, only to have RMS in the corner probing orifices going "I told you!"
