   Re: [xml-dev] Another Microsoft XML patent

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

My company?  My company is myself.  I'm independent.  Haven't worked
on MS campus in almost 5 years.

Sorry if I said something that directed you to think otherwise...  

but yes I do believe in that statement.  I realize that the U.S.
Patent system is FUBAR'd... I try to look at it from as many angles as
possible but the bottom line is that its a system that is very close
to if not completely in disrepair.

I believe that a patent system needs to exist but not in its current
state here in the U.S.  It's flat out AWFUL.
