XOR patent ended CD32, and Commodore-Amiga

There is yet another theory of Commodore's demise: Software patents did it.

Apparently Commodore-Amiga owed $10M for patent infringement. Because of that, the US government wouldn't allow any CD-32's into the USA. And because of that, the Phillipines factory seized all of the CD-32's that had been manufactured to cover unpaid expenses. And that was the end.
