Pamela Jones and Groklaw, she is supporting it, mainly on the belief of
"patents bad" standing.
I say "Patents BAD" only if they are used for keeping progress from
happening. "Patents GOOD" if they are used to promote the industry and
are freely usable... like Patent pledges and giving Patents to the OIN
or other similar organizations.

product to those dinky little model rockets that kids light off down at
the playfield. -- Thane Walkup
