I think Rohit's mention of my http://crit.org/ thing nearly two
years ago was my introduction to this very list. I know i've
mentioned it once already that this was a while before Third Voice,
despite what it says at http://www.thirdvoice.com/about/index.htm.

More importantly, please see http://www.thirdvoice.com/copyright.htm.
I'm most concerned by the mention of "numerous patents pending".
Does this bother any of you as much as it does me? Do you have
any ideas on how to make sure they don't happen to patent something
as general as third-party Web annotation?

Thanks for your wisdom,
