That depends on the law. Almost all computer users I know have several Crazy Bytes or Twilight CD-ROMs, so that says enough. I'd say that this type of laws is as much respected here as trafic rules for bycycles in Amsterdam. But further, I still don't know how a company _can_ patent IDEA in Europe. As far as I know, European laws don't permit it.
