What Does "IP" Really Mean?

,----[ Quote ]
| For readers of Linux Journal, "IP" almost certainly refers to the Internet 
| Protocol, part of the TCP/IP suite that underpins the Internet. But to most  
| people, if it means anything, "IP" refers to something known as "intellectual 
| property". This widespread recognition is rather curious, 
| because "intellectual property" does not exist.   


Also interesting, but for other reasons:

| And if you look in history, it was never the case, that the suppressed and 
| fighting classes gain the power, but those classes, who changed 
| the “framework” by bringing a new mode of production into live practically. 
| There were class struggles, but for example the new bourgois class in 
| feudalism instrumentally used the fights of farmers and craftsmen and the 
| need of the ruling feudal class for weapons for their wars. Both, 
| farmers/craftsmen and feudalists, lost, capitalists prevailed.      



Microsoft Linux spat good news for Novell

,----[ Quote ]
| "Rather than litigate, Microsoft has spent the past three years
| building an intellectual property bridge that works for all
| parties, including open source, and the customer response has
| been tremendously positive," said a Microsoft spokesman.
| "Our focus is on continuing to build bridges. Microsoft and
| Novell have already developed a solution that meets the needs
| of customers, furthers interoperability, and advances the
| interests of the industry as a whole.
| "Any customer that is concerned about Linux
| intellectual property issues needs only to obtain their open source 
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| subscriptions from Novell."
