I have glanced through the patents. They are about calculating the branch metric in viterbi decoding. Didnt understand the exact advantage of the proposed system. But having worked in similar areas(Wireless PHY design) I can confidently say, there are atleast a 100 other ways of doing the same thing. Not something very unique IMO. Most of the maths you see in that patent is from textbook and not invented by CMU. http://www.google.com/patents?id=SS8JAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4#v=onepage&q&f=false http://www.google.com/patents?id=KKQLAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4#v=onepage&q&f=false

Peoples intelectual property should be respected and paid to use. If willfull stealling is proven. Creaters wronged and that took time to ask for payment and blown off should compensated. The stealing party should be forced to pay extra damages also for court cost above infringment amount. Stealing is thievery, period, and needs too be have enforcment means.

CMU's name was used in Mean Girls 2 (appropriate?). I wonder how much they were paid for that.
