Decided to post this here after reading a tweet from Dan Cederholm (of SimpleBits fame) and realizing this wasn't an issue isolated to me and me alone.  Backstory: I wrestled with this issue for a good amount of time on a recently completed project and then decided to just give up making it work.

Xerox sues Google over some potentially patent-infringing search methods.Xerox sues Google over some potentially patent-infringing search methods.

The patents themselves are very explicit, and appear to deal with the very specific application of methods and even software, some of it bearing Xerox trademarks. Theoretically, such methods could be used in the dissemination of live repositories of information.
