Hi, I am sorry for this excessive crossposting, but it is urgent and important.
The ffii.org made a list of cms-related patents. They need some feedback from people actively using or developing Content Management Systems to qualify the patents. Please note that there is an ongoing legislative process in the european parliament. Time is running short and the patent-holding companies are doing an aggressive lobbying. Please consider the listed patent descriptions in context of your favorite Zope CMS and give feedback to Holger Blasum or Dirk Steuwer from FFII. Clarify to them to which extent your favorite Zope CMS could be affected by the given patent. Please reply to me, Dirk Steuwer and Holger Blasum Thanks for your help! juh And here are the links! THIS IS THE LIST!
