"Eolas founder and sole employee Mike Doyle said the W3C was right to take
a closer look at HTML with respect to his patent."

Does this mean the Mr. Doyle gets the entire $521 Million himself? <lol>

Please excuse the cross-post, but it seemed to me the following links rightly
and appropriately belong in this thread for I perceive them to be germane to
this subject.

Sadly for him, no. UC gets 25%, Eolas gets 75% minus legal fees,
which they say will be used for "research projects."

The developer of Viola says the judge prevented demonstrating Viola to
the jury and telling the jury that Doyle was informed about Viola prior
to the patent filing.

Personally, I feel that this patent should be invalidated
because it is too broad in its coverage. The patent office
in the U.S. needs to be dealt with harshly because of
the damage it is doing by giving out patents for many
things that are obvious and are sometimes the only
good way of doing certain things.

This clearly demonstrates bias by the judge in not allowing
highly relevant information to be presented to the jury.

If Microsoft does not win on appeal, it will further show just
how serious the flaws are in the U.S. judicial system.

What crosspost? Your article was posted to this group only.

If you mean you posted a SEPARATE COPY to one or more other groups,
that is _not_ crossposting but multiposting, and it's quite annoying
to your readers. Please see

If Microsoft doesn't ultimately win, then I don't see the harm of doing
things just like SSL:

[] Enable plug-ins to be embedded in web pages. If you live in the US,
you must have a license from Eolas.

XHTML 2 maybe should make an issue of this and specify that US browsers
only embed objects in formats that they can intrinsically handle. If
they can't handle it, then they should display the alternate content.
