Re: [ba-ohs-talk] :zz: ZigZag patent and trademark [Was: **** Instant Outlining !!! ***]

That would be the question I was asking as well. I'll avoid
further contact with the stuff if so. I can't imagine going
to the trouble of patenting something unless one had some
notion of benefiting at some point from the patent.    (01)

I consider the research I'm doing right now to be predominantly
influenced by ISO 10744 Hytime and ISO 16250 Topic Maps, and
I wouldn't make any references to zzstructures in either my
software or Ph.D. if that might end up taking me into a
courtroom... a bit shy 'bout these things yuh unnerstan'?    (02)
