Re: Another Microsoft XML patent
Thanks Rich! This helps explain at least part of the reason why "Patent Pending" seems to be more label dominant than "U.S. Patent #1234567890". I've always seen it as a marketing gimmick more than anything else but 4 years is definitely long enough to justify things a bit further than a gimmick and more towards a necessity, especially in legitimate "patent-is-possible-if-not-guaranteed" cases.
