EOLAS v Microsoft
Jeffrey Zeldman Presents: The Daily Report discusses the possibility that Microsoft lost the EOLAS pluggin patent on purpose. I have been speculating on this for quite some time, because MS has never lost a fight like this before. They could have made this problem go away more cheaply years ago.
Microsoft will do what they will with this. The question is what will EOLAS do?
If EOLAS does a GIF like license moving forward then we can go about our business.
The only affect then will be the MS FUD of any "potentially infringing" technolology that they may be bidding against.
More thoughts as the day develops...
