Men softwareselskabet KAM Industries mener at open
source-programmet krænker flere patenter og forlanger nu en
erstatning på 29 dollar for hver af de 7.000 brugere, der har
hentet programmet. Regnet sammen bliver det til 200.000 dollar
eller 1,2 millioner kroner.

KAM har desuden bedt programmørens arbejdsgiver, Berkley Livermore
Labs, om at udlevere al hans korrespondance og andre dokumenter.

Jacobsen forsvarer sig med, at der er talrige eksempler på
modeljernbane-programmer skabt inden KAM indsendte sin
patentansøgning - inklusive hans eget program. Derfor mener han
ikke, at selskabet har nogen chance for at vinde en retssag.
