RE: Microsoft Patents Serializing Objects To XML And Se nding
Yes. Thoroughly debated here already. The way forward is to recognize this is a global problem and to create a system that is irrefutable, simple, and cheap. It's a good job for the SemWeb: enabling patent examination. If it is to be the top priority of the W3C, do something really useful with it.

You might have a solid case, but with no funding, you'll not be able to argue it. Even the most frivolous patents are a liability, if the preditor knows your the size of your purse. > Some are overfocused on the USPTO because it makes them > feel good and because you believe it unassailable so > we/they/you are relieved of action.
