nunfetishist: I'm fairly sure that ARM have patents on the basic 32 bit ISA. I've read stuff being parented about the way the registers are swapped as you change mode, etc. And I'm sure that's just one of many. There was a discussion about this last month on comp.arch if anyone is really interested.

In addition the StrongARM does not do Thumb code, and yet Digital and Intel had to get licenses to use it.
