Like I said, in Russia they don't educate people about IPR, then they come to the US with their own ignorance and misperception and get in troubles... Good luck go ahead and infringe on their IPR willfully... I wonder if you will really laugh should you been trying your own theory... Ha Ha Ha.....

Right, they did not - no need for freaking IPR under the Communist Party rule.
>Good luck go ahead and infringe on their IPR willfully...
I am afraid it might be the other way around... BTW, your answer to 10.1 Q is just plain wrong: ask any good IP lawyer to fill you in. And in case you can't afford it just ask on misc.int-property: they will give you free advice...
Blah Blah Blah, cost nothing huh?

I guess I'll just wait how the first sucker get sued by them, will it be 
you Dmitry?

I am a law abiding citizen of this great country, Oded...

I have nothing to be sued for by anybody, unlike some other people and
even some large companies...  (I don't include your beloved Compandent
here: with all due respect, it's just insignificant...)

If somebody wants to make some new improved sdMELP (super duper MELP)
Compandent's "IPR" would be the least of all concerns.
The main hurdle would be some basic patents held by some well-known
company located down in the South...
Fortunately, all patents do expire someday, some sooner, some later...
