Subject Patents & ASF policy
Date Tue, 16 Mar 2004 09:40:02 GMT
The ASP.NET project has brought up an interesting question for me.

what happens if a ASF sponsored project (lets take jakarta for example) 
is the subject of a patent dispute say 2-3 years from inception.

and lets say that the patent is valid, enforcable, and the patent holder 
decides he wants to do something. 

what happens to jakarta then? 

what risk/options does the ASF have in this case?
