Register as many patents. If someone sues you for infringing on their patent. They you look in your patent books and see what you can counter sue for. What a shame that the game has to be played this way.
WARNING: I am not in any way suggesting you actually use copied software. That is wrong and illegal. Always purchase your software from a recognised vendor.
Thats covered me. :)
I personally couldn't believe Adobe filed that... And Macromedia has let themselves be dragged to the same level:
A trial is scheduled to begin in the same court Monday regarding Macromedia's first countersuit, charging that Adobe's Photoshop image-editing software and its GoLive Web design software infringe on two patents that Macromedia holds for editing tools. A second Macromedia countersuit, filed last year in U.S. District Court for Northern California, is not yet scheduled for trial.
I'm personally hoping the verdict is thrown out on appeal, and the patent office pulls its head out of the very dark place it's apparently been stuffed into... They really need to stop issuing frivolous patents. How about the 7 year old who patented a method for swinging sideways on playground swing sets?
