Thanks, Jack ...    (01)

Yes, I saw that on slashdot a couple of days ago[1]. I almost wanted
to post it to [ontolog-forum] as we are starting a conversation on IPR
issues ... but then, decided against it, as bashing of the prevailing
paradigm and institutions (or anybody, for that matter) is probably
counterproductive* to our (Ontolog) cause.    (02)

(While not directly related) on that same day, there was another
slashdot post[2] relating to the "first sale doctrine" which I think
is really significant, as far as software licensing  issues are
concerned.    (04)

Regards.  =ppy    (06)

p.s.  *given the caveat and this disclaimer, I feel more comfortable
to make the post now. Therefore, folks at Ontolog, please don't take
this conversation in the 'wrong' direction, please.  Thanks in
advance. =ppy
