International law is a difficult problem to solve, but one that, in my 
personal opinion, needs to be solved as far as we can reasonably do.  It would 
be embarrassing to have a project Open Sourced, only to have people in one 
jurisdiction unable to exercise their rights because of a mistake concerning 
patent rights.
