    Perhaps one service that patentbusters.org could provide is to
    publicise this concept (so that companies understand it) and act
    as a synchronization centre for companies that are under threat
    to find companies that are likely to be next in line and convince
    them to contribute a small amount to breaking the patent. In short,
    the organization of defence consortiums.

This is a useful thing to do.  But as people consider a variety of
ways of fighting against software patents, I'd like to suggest the
idea of reanimating the LPF, and using it to do this work.
That is the right organization to use.

Is anyone interested in that undertaking?  It would be very useful.
