Summary:
During the interview, Hilf defended Microsoft's patent threats by arguing that the company is simply conforming with the standard practices implied by United States patent law. "Would we or could we ever litigate, yeah sure, it's always an option," says Hilf. "The key to that is to separate people's, individuals' and groups' belief about software patents as an issue and then what is the current way that we do patent law in at least the United States. You may disagree with it, but there's a law for how we deal with patents. They often get wrapped up together as the same issue, but they're not the same."
