--text follows this line--

This is an appeal to prevent the further corruption of our research
and educational institutions by the obscenity of software patents (and of
copyrights in general). If anyone on here has anything to do with the
VoiceXML group, please do your best to see to it that Rutgers receives _no_
patent revenues whatsoever, including by redesigning VoiceXML and/or
challenging Rutgers' (probably invalid, given the incompetence of the
"Office of Technology Transfer") patent relating to it. Please note that I
am writing this as a Rutgers (graduate) student.
