in other thread on this forum (bad karma for M$) I've read that alctal (I hope I spelled it right) is suing M$ of violating 7 patents
my question is :
how is it possible to sue a "closed source" company like M$, if you can't see there source code and can't prove it ?
I mean , there are many ways to go from A to B, and every way is a different patent
so how can you be sure that the company uses YOUR patent to achieve it's goal ? (I am talking about closed source companies).
