Re: What about patents?
Argyll is primarily a research project. I haven't knowingly used patent technology,
but then I haven't gone and researched software patents in foreign countries like the USA.
One of the "bogy man" patents has expired (the schriber patent). As long as
patent offices keep OK'ing obvious ideas and developments, progress will suffer,
and there will be problems.
By making Argyll public I am guaranteeing that this technology will
be free of patents at some time in the future.
What about patents?
I vaguely seem to recall that the reason for GIMP (www.gimp.org) not having any color management features (?) is because of patent issues. Does this application use any patented technology?
