   RE: [xml-dev] Bruce Perens and yet more patents

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

So fight fire with water or more fire?  

A call for arms means show up armed. If 
proprietary patents are met with open patents, 
after a time, the fires will go out.  If patents 
are lucrative and tradable, we'll go for them. 
Smarter players are collecting them by domains 
into protected preserves, then liasing with 
other collectors with compatible policies.

The probability is that many will attempt to 
solve the problem with their posteriors 
instead of the smarter end of their assets.

Sorry, couldn't resist. At first, I read your last sentence as
"...manage them the way *wildfire*..."

Something about your previous posts and posterior probability :=)
