I'm having trouble with google translate and deciphering what that patent actually means
 
well, it's in a strange language that only adepts can understand...
 
Having worked with patent lawyers, I marvel at how a very specific innovation gets a broad language that seems, at first glance, to cover everything and anything.
Don't know what I mean? Have a look at a patent and see how often you'll read 'may', 'but not restricted to', 'embodiment' and the like.

I haven't read the CMU patent, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were written in such a way. And then the average person in the Jury can easily be convinced that infringement took place.
