Вы тут расслабляетесь, а там между прочим Интел всех запатентовал!

United States Patent 7,120,140

Digital browser phone

Abstract

A telephone system wherein all the functions of a digital telephone can be accessed and implemented on a personal computer alone, thereby eliminating the need for a telephone set. By means of the computer display and mouse, keyboard or other input/output command devices, a user accesses and implement all digital telephone functions without the physical telephone set, the personal computer also providing the audio function. A graphical representation of a telephone set or other telephone-related form is provided on the computer display and accessed by the mouse, keyboard or other command device, this being accomplished by a computer program providing graphical interface implementation. A significant advantage of the system is computer access to and utilization of digital telephone functions from a remote location with communication via Internet, LAN, WAN, RAS or other mediums.

Я должен признать, что вообще не всасываю, как работает патентное право. Десятки присутствующих здесь пользователей, включая ВПС, могут назвать дофига подобных продуктов, коммерческие релизы которых случались до 2000-го года, когда была подана заявка на интеловский патент, и таким образом составляют prior art. Как такие патенты вообще выдаются?
