I'm going to speak up here and ask that the org doesn't officially ban
discussions on patent related info. I for one would rather have some
policy of tagging the discussion by the poster. I don't want to be
required to not be allowed to find out about new patents that have an
impact on my work. I want to know about them. And yes, I've been
through the issue twice before with clients. Fortunately, one was over
a hardware issue, which never really required me to get that involved.

Any contact with a lawyer is unpleasant in my book — I've had the
unfortunate pleasure of doing that a lot lately :). But this is
something that I'm willing to put up with in order to not be left in
the dark.

Now that's just me. Obviously, there will be others on this list who
will have, or have a different view.

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they are not.
