RE:  Re: we owe SUN?
It's not so much lazy as overworked & under incentivized (is that really a
word?).  This whole mess with obvious patents started the same time the
USPTO's directive changed from 'deny by default' to 'approve by default'.
Once big corporations realized that the standard of 'non-obvious'ness had
changed, they started submitting patents in mass, and the peons at the USPTO
are now seriously overworked without the resources to do their jobs the way
they're supposed to.

The head of the USPTO simply refuses to see the problems which are becoming
more and more obvious, taking the tact that if a patent has been approved,
it must be valid, since there can't be anything wrong with HIS system.

Hi Dimitre

[Dimitre said]
It is very likely there's still no patent for the Divide and Conquer
algorithmic principle, not to speak about generic templates and XPath
Visualizers that use an axiom from set theory, in their algorithm...

I'm starting to write patent applications immediately :o))

[Didier replies]
You know Dimitre, after seeing how lazy the patent office people are, we
could probably obtain a patent for the air composition. This will be a big
payoff for sure :-))
