Let's say the patent demonstration code is in C

Can I implement something similar in assembly language, and thus, circumvent the software patent?

Plus, I think EFF will meet with stiff opposition from the powerful association of patent lawyers - they are obviously exerting giga-profits from all the patent-related court cases, and they (the patent lawyers) ain't gonna let this goose that lay the golden eggs get slaughtered by EFF

Really Weak Effort, EFF (1)

Even the courts lately have been seriously questioning the validity of software patents, and EFF calls for "limiting their duration"???

Dudes. I am a big EFF supporter and fan, but that's really lame.
