Free package(s) attacked:

xcin (http://xcin.linux.org.tw)

Who developed it:

Currently the maintainer is Tung-Han Hsieh

Feature or functionality endangered:

The problem is, that the main part of translating keystrokes to chinese characters are tables which make the mapping. Many of the widely used tables are commercial and are not directly
available in the Free Software. First there where some tools which tryied to extract the important informations from the tables, published with xcin but the current maintainer stopped this. Now they try to write own methods to simulate and replace the commercial software.

What the patent covers: Patents cover various tables which are important for Chinese input software
Patent holders: Don't speek chinese and can't gather the informations
Patent numbers: Don't speek chinese and can't gather the informations
patent expires: Don't speek chinese and can't gather the informations

Outcome:

The xcin project still lives but removed the extract-tools and is now developing their own input method, which follows the I18N and XIM standard.
