IANAL, but this appears to be a patent application, not an issued patent. If it is ever issued as an actual patent, which is unlikely since there is no novel content, it won\'t happen for many years.
IANAL, but here\'s how the USPTO seems to work: Company A files application for obvious, non-novel \"invention\". Patent examiner turns it down. Company A rewrites the claims, making them harder to understand, and tries again. Patent examiner turns it down again. Process repeats until patent examiner is tired of Company A\'s persistence and issues the patent just to make Company A go away. Patent examiner figures \"let the courts decide\".
If you have a morbid interest in the USA patent fiasco and how it retards Progress in Science and Useful Arts, I highly recommend www.groklaw.net
. Be prepared to be utterly revolted, because it\'s worse than you can possibly imagine.
