Gating the internet?


Some people are concerned that Microsoft may be about to assert IP rights over the internet.. That means claims to TCP/IP, among over 100 alleged patents. That means, in theory, everyone using the internet would have to pay Microsoft a toll. Rather alarming, if true. Something to watch.

comments:

That's decidedly weird. TCP/IP predates the Microsoft Corporation itself by several years. I don't really wonder what else MS is going to assert claims to followed by being buried in prior art, because I have every confidence that we will find out soon enough.
