    It was on slashdot yesterday, the gist of it was, Lexmark sells printer
    cartridges for a lower price on the condition you return it (or somesh*t)
    Judgement was, its a patent infringement to take those cartridges and
    refill them yourselves.
    Its a big noise because its saying that once you have bought something,
    you have to use it as you agreed to, and no other way. No more hacking
    XBox to run *nix, no more buying jug cords to use as computer power cords,
    no more buying belts to wrap around kids asses.
