Micro$oft owns the patent, of course. You can read it here:
It's one of those annoying patents that make extremely broad claims as well
as specific ones. Presumably that's becuase they know the broad claims aren't
likely to stand up if it ever went to court, but they want to discourage anyone
from trying it anyway. I don't doubt someone who was knowegable in both law
and computing could figure out a way to accomplish roughly the same thing 
violating the patent though.
