    what does this mean?

    "apparatus claims of U.S patent Nos.
    4,631,603; 4,577,216; 4,819,098, and 4,907,063
    licensed for limited viewing uses only"

    found a sticker reading that on my msi 7800gtx.

    Just a patent. So no one can copy that specific whatever it is.

    Guess they don't want you recording videos with that? Also there's a patent for the Hitatchi made resistors (?).
