Like, ya know

Or not.  Bill Gates must be envious (he couldn't patent 1 and 0, went the old joke);

Facebook is facing legal action over its use of the "like" button and other features of the social network.
It is being sued by a patent-holding company acting on behalf of a dead Dutch programmer called Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer.
...."We believe Rembrandt's patents represent an important foundation of social media as we know it, and we expect a judge and jury to reach the same conclusion based on the evidence," said lawyer Tom Melsheimer from legal firm Fish and Richardson, which represents the patent holder.
Go Fish!
