The name of a patent doesn't really say much. You now asked people,
who mostly are not knowledgeable about patents, to read through a
whole bunch of patents, and say if these may be applicable to their
CMSs. I find that request quite unreasonable. Judging from the english
titles alone, all the patents are applicable to anything that uses
Zope, but I assume this is not what you need to know, as you surely
are aware of that already.

A description (in english) of what the patents actually try to patent
would probably be more useful. It is quite often very hard to figure
that out from the patents itself, unless you are a patent clerk, which
I'm not, and besides there are no links to the patents, so it is
impossible to do anyway.

A list of what is actually supposed to be patented would be possible
for us poor non-lawyers to actually go through and see if they are
