Fascinating as the wrangling is to watch, it's perhaps quite relevant to point out that there IS an option for one-time programmable non-volatile memory that does NOT have any legal worries or concerns associated-- Novocell Semiconductor was founded in 2001, was awarded some of the EARLIEST process and methods patents in the field, and licenses their (ok, OUR - wink) full line of products to SoC firms, IDMs, and foundries from 8 bit to 4Mbit sizes. Using Novocell's innovative Smartbit bit cell, which utilizes a dynamic programming method, the product line provides over 30 years data storage life, and a guaranteed 100% bit programming--assuring that all data is programmed at the time of hardbreakdown of the gate oxide. Details at www.novocellsemi.com of course.

I tell you, I never knew that the world of one-time programmable memory could be quite so exciting...
