I've just received this from "XML.org Daily Newslink. Tuesday, 11 February
2003" (dee schur)...


MS .Net Patent -- A Threat to Standards?
Lisa M. Bowman, ZDNet News

Microsoft is in the process of applying for a wide-ranging patent that
covers a variety of functions related to its .Net initiative.  If
approved as is, the patent would cover application programming
interfaces (APIs) that allow actions related to accessing the network,
handling Extensible Markup Language (XML), and managing data from
multiple sources.



It's sad that the technical efforts of the standards, are always between the
political context of patents and the business context of the industry.
