It says that as long as we follow Google's protocol standard, they
won't sue us for infringing on their patents ("patents necessarily
infringed by implementation of this specification"). Oh, how very

in MediaWiki without following their protocol? That is where we
should be worried. What exactly is it that they have patented?
