More on RDF Patent dispute

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

Busy blog day today.

It’s ironic, but I was working on the RDF book for O’Reilly when I caught Dave Winer’s post that O’Reilly received one of the RDF patent notifications. Read more at Dale Dougherty’s weblog. This news does not surprise me. Sigh.

-earlier- has a brief article about the RDF patent issue I mentioned yesterday morning.

Chances are, these first patent-related mailings are a method of “testing the waters” — throw out some documents, *verbicate some legal mumbo-jumbo, and see what floats easily to the surface that can be skimmed (scammed?) with a minimum of effort.

*verbicate — emit bullshit with great fanfare and waving of arms
