Microsoft Copies Idea, Admits It, Then Patents It

For those of you who think there is nothing wrong with the Patent Office, Copyrights and the entire process... explain this to me: How can Microsoft get a patent on something after admitting they stole it from some Java program (thus providing proof of someone else's prior art themselves)?

In fact, the license of BlueJ says it can not be used for commercial purposes, or included in something for sale... And M$ used it for Visual Studio.
