Sorry to burst your bubble, but the PCR patent covers all polymerases,
themostable and labile.  I got a copy of the patent to see if some of the
stuff I was working on would be covered by it, and was amazed at how general
the patent was.  Basically, it covers any amplification of nucleic acids
using a nucleic acid primer in which the product of one reaction is used as
template in a subsequent reaction.
