[B]SOMEONE at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) must have
screwed up by granting Microsoft a patent on using a graphics processing
unit (GPU) to encode video.[/B]

Sounds more like [B]SOMEONE got paid a lot of money from MS [/B]to grant that Patent
to Microsoft after 6 years and when ATi and Nvidia is getting into shipping the GPU
encoding software at least it sounds like that to me. :confused:

I guess now that MS has the Patent they will be trying to sue just about everyone
that ships and uses GPU encoding software. This is just what the American Judicial
system really needs more frivolous lawsuits to tie up the US Court systems. :rolleyes:
