Something from the end software patents Australia list that I thought could
interest some people on this list.


Hi Folks,

Thought you might be interested in this seminar on patents by "IP
Australia" next Wednesday. I'll be attending and hopefully asking some
questions relevant to our campaign.

 From the battle to capture the hearts and minds of smart-phone
