18:18:28 <jeffbarr> Happy new year everyone. Did anyone else receive a
package of patents via Fedex from Merchant &
[...]
18:23:29 <jeffbarr> I got a packet via Fedex yesterday from a law
firm. They state that a company has developed and patented a way of
dynamically organizing and patenting data, and that "Implementations
of the well-known Resource Description Framework ("RDF") and RDF Site
Summary ("RSS") technologies, among other uses, may be covered by one
of more of the claims of UDTL's patents." They enclosed copies of the
patents and are interested in development and licensing.
