Suppose, you want to start a business selling laptops that too in the US 
-- a place which has a horribly stupid capitalist government (thus 1 of 
the few nations to have 'software patents').

The, will you sell the laptops with -

1) mp3 decoding/encoding preinstalled
2) Dolby technologies preinstalled
3) DTS technologies preinstalled
4) Oracle's JRE rather than the opensource version?
5) etc... etc... etc...
