Maybe not :-) After being petitioned the US Patent office has agreed to 
reexamine the Eolas patents. Yes!

<http://news.com.com/2100-1032-5106129.html>

"""A substantial outcry from a widespread segment of the affected 
industry has essentially raised a question of patentability with 
respect to the 906 patent claims," Stephen Kunin, the USPTO's deputy 
commissioner for patent examination policy, wrote in his order for 
re-examination. "This creates an extraordinary situation for which a 
director-ordered examination is an appropriate remedy."""

That was 1 mo. ago I don't know what has happened since.
