Summary:
Say you have patented software...Later, I independently write a piece of code that does the same thing, completely unaware that you have a patent on something in there, and completely in good faith. There's no trick anywhere. Several years later you're looking at this new open source software that suddenly came across your radar, and you say, "Wait a minute, these guys are infringing my patent." You can then sue anyone who's using it for patent infringement.
