    No further information… I’ve not looked into it. It might even just be FUD.

    That’s what I was thinking.

    The annoying thing about this rumor is it is killing off potential development… people like me are putting off any sort of effort because it might get hit by lawyers.

    Hmm… I wasn’t aware that patents could be used to stop development – only commercial use. I’m no lawyer though.

    Patents suck… perhaps someone should just annoymously implement stuff and freenet it.

    Yeah… submarine patents even more so.
