Is this patent a threat to the QR code function in the Bitcoin client and other alternative clients?

It looks way too broad.  Anyone using it for bitcoins prior to his filing date would be grandfathered in anyway.

This patent is for executable QR codes, ie, actual byte-code instructions encoded in a QR code. This doesn't affect Bitcoin or anything else using QR codes for URIs or IDs or any other kind of non-executable data.

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4
