Quick Bob.

You need to set your "Do you wish to receive the occasional special offer from the users" option to "No".

Well it means they spent a lot of money in order to publish their full method and how it's done so that someone can copy it all easily in a few years time?
That remains to be seen, paying for software patents, when a huge chunk of of the I.T community is against them was a gamble, however, even if software patents become obsolete, which I personally think they will be eventually, the new SOPA regulations going through congress will offer just as good protection.

The big corporations will not go down gently after spending so much time in research and development to let their IP be copied, SOPA is the first step to protecting it, expect much more in the future and stiffer penalties for IP thieves.

A patent even if they become obsolete in the future it is the ideal tool to present in a copyright case, it gives the owner solid registered proof when an idea is theirs, as long as they were first to market (US) they can blow any thing close out of the water.

If they stay in place, and when the patent is approved, as owner I get a 17 year monoploy...

Re: Occasional special offers emailed to all EF members

Dear Admin,

Today I received 2 unsolicited emails from thelocal.com, which referenced thelocal.de (although there was even a typo in the emails with thelocal.se) with the subject 'headhunters want you'.

screw you. I am not even a member of that site.

Make sure you keep your forum software updated. I do hope you use salted hashes on users passwords. And I do so hope you have a current BCP.
