I am curious as to how Australians view U.S.-centric IPR issues such as 
licenses (e.g., GPL/LGPL) and patents. I read yesterday on Slashdot (and 
would need to confirm this yet) that Microsoft has filed some ungodly amount 
of U.S. patents (I think 5,000). The IPR patent issue is a sticky one lately 
in Europe and I'm curious about Australia / New Zealand viewpoints.
