I hope they find the necessary prior art, but I think this is also
interesting from the point of view of making the software patent problem
understandable to politicians.

Spam and viruses are social problems.  Trend Micro are giving us an example
to cite so that we can explain to MEPs that software patents block solutions
to social problems.

I'm wondering if/how we should build on this...
