Watch out people. Especially those sarcastic ones amongst you who think that only the saddos that publish all their details will fall into the clutches of the Web 2.0 data hoarders.
I wouldn't touch one of these personal information suppliers with a long, insulated, anti-bacterially protected stick. However, Facebook got my details because one of their victims decided to "invite" me using their e-mail address gathering system.
Eventually, I got confirmation that my details had been removed. Somehow, I don't believe them.
Microsoft are claiming a specific number of patents (infringements?), which is 235. Clearly they have internal documentation/knowledge of exactly which ones they mean.
I'm sure I saw some recent comments that seemed to claim that if you don't defend against a known patent infringement, this failure to act invalidates the patent. I would assume that *if* this is correct, then some time limits must apply and there are probably other issues too.
Can someone that really understands this law please clarify this?
Note that an article explaining it might be better than just responding to this comment :-)
