No, I won't pay.  It's not my problem, and they can foot the bill.  If they 
were wise, they would fund patent reform efforts as the most enduring way to 
prevent these disasters from continually arising.  But they won't because 
they also benefit from the patent racket.

And even if Apple gets sued for patent infringement, that doesn't mean that 
the suit has merits -- experts already looked at the evidence surrounding 
Vorbis and patentability, and unanimously said "it's clear".
