#5 The US Patent Office enabled a lot of this nonsense when they started granting patents on business methods. Before that, you had to have an actual physical machine. Afterwards, you just needed to append "on the Internet" to your lame-ass business plan.
Patenting a scanner is one thing. Trying to patent the idea of sending the scanned file via email should fail the obviousness test and get you tossed down the stairs.

#6 I'd love to see some of our patent and IP attorneys answer that letter they're sending. :-D
Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure they'll never send us one ....
