I wouldn't reply more to avoid cluttering the list (that is not
patents@w3c.org) but that's where you're completely wrong for several

The world is *much* bigger than the US... Wikipedia is a good start...

About my early sent email, pressed the wrong button, sorry. ;) But I had
nothing to add anyway.
