Submission + - Oracle v Google A Programmer Reads the Patents (

mikejuk writes: After much group discussion about the Oracle/Google trial, I suddenly realized that none of my colleagues had read the patents — neither had I and this meant we were all talking about something we didn't know anything about. So I decided to find out what the patents really cover by reading them from cover to cover — the results were interesting.
Do you think I found amazing ideas worthy of patent protection?
