Patent threat to W3C’s RDF

Patent threat to W3C’s RDF technology
“Uche Ogbuji, one of the authors of Fourthought’s popular Python/XML processing software, reports receiving a letter from a law firm claiming that software which processed RDF or RSS may be covered under one of their clients’ patents. It did not, he notes, reference the names of his software explicitly.”

Wow i wonder how this is going to effect all us RSS and RDF folks.
