The patent was owned by a company called "Cad Track" or "Cadtrak". More information on the patent can be found at http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/clas....html#NinePats
. There's a brief discussion of the patent issue on the Amiga CD32 Wikipedia page
If you watch Dave Haynie's Death Bed Vigil video, during the Layoff Party at Margarita's Evergreen Inn, one of the Commodore employees advises Commodore management to "next time, just pay Cad Track".
