I can't imagine it holding up, though.

Yeah, this isn't going to hold up. People were doing this long before the patent in 1997.

5 Million for using free, open-source software?
I believe an appeal is on the way, they are using free software that is available to be modified and used by the general public as long as the original name of said software is not used. So I don't know how this got through so easily.
