I've already indicated my opinion on the AUUG matter so I won't comment on 
that. One thing that I would like to know is your stance on software patents. 
From reading a few of your recent messages, I gather that you may be in 
favour of them. Can you please clarify your position?

"The solution is patenting as much as we can. A future startup with no patents 
of its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose. 
That price might be high. Established companies have an interest in excluding 
future competitors." - Bill Gates, 1991
