Plus, isn't there any kind of issue regarding patents that is similar to
the "if you don't fight for it, you may lose it" issue for copyrights?

(Also, as long as I'm a company with the money to pay for legal costs, I 
personally would fight for the principle of the thing..  As I can tell, I have
largely differing views over patents than most of the people here.  While
I think there are a lot of _stupid_ patents given out, patents in general
are a great idea, and I'm not philosophically opposed to software patents like
a lot of other people seem to be.  I don't mean to start a big offtopic
debate on this.)
