Note that patents on software and algorithms are not that common outside the U.S., though I understand that the E.U. was considering them. The U.S. just got a little silly about the whole thing -- unfortunately, it's the one market that's too big for the rest of us to ignore. I wonder how long it will be until the USPTO starts granting patents for book and movie plots. All the best, David -- David Megginson, david@m..., http://www.megginson.com/
