Userland on the Microsoft Patent



Dave Winer:

It’ll be interesting to see when Microsoft claims to have invented this. We were creating APIs for a network software platform in the late 80s. We eventually worked with Microsoft on this stuff with the understanding that they had not filed any patents in this area. As I write this I’m sitting in a building filled with lawyers.

John Robb:

Hmmm.  Microsoft’s patent application for .Net sounds exactly like Radio.
