Later in Crypto-Gram, there's a pointer to a message where someone
came up with a number of ways of implementing DRM through
Palladium... and is patenting those methods.
Since the MS people claimed they couldn't figure out how to do this,
the methods aren't obvious. There doesn't appear to be any prior art,
so the patents are likely to be granted. I doubt he'll license them
