I find it pretty pointless, as it does not say what to do (other than
the good old "ask a lawyer"). That may be because there is nothing
rational to do, as everything is patented. Avoiding the distribution of
patented software would make any distro unusable, and IMHO removing
functionality because it is patented is just a submissive way to help
the owner and keep the ball rolling.
