Unfortunately, software patents are part of the business landscape now.
They often seem to be comfort blankets for investors ("we have something
unique that absolutely preserves our market position") rather than anything
real. To succeed in an interview, one must avoid laughing at the claims to
uniqueness and refrain from pointing out that the patent actually describes
a sub-optimal solution.
