Subject: [wscm-comment] WebServices Patent

I was wondering if any of you have any thoughts on the ramifications of this:


The government sector's requirement for a single-sign-on 
authentication/authorization certification service and, therefore, a 
single-sign-on entry to Web Services could very well be impacted by 
this patent, or conversely, any insistence on keeping that 
information freely available, and under no copyright other than an 
individual's control of his/her personal profile data could be 
enforced via the simple expedient of the government's ability to 
endure any legal process designed to merely bankrupt a less 
monetarily endowed entity.
