Description

This article is from the Copyright Law FAQ, by Terry Carroll with numerous contributions by others.

3.12) Why is there so little in this FAQ about patents?

Peter Treloar, the moderator of comp.patents, currently maintains a FAQ
devoted exclusively to patents, and duplicating his effort here would be
needlessly redundant.

The comp.patents FAQ is periodically posted to the Usenet comp.patents
newsgroup. A current copy is available by anonymous FTP from
ftp.su.oz.au, in directory /pub/patents/incoming, and from
ftp.uni-stuttgart.de [129.69.8.13], in directory /pub/doc/comp.patents.

The comp.patents FAQ (or "The Internet Patent Book") is available in two
versions. The file named "internet_patents.txt" is a plain ascii text;
"internet_patents.ps" is a PostScript version. The PostScript version is
by far the more readable of the two.

For further information regarding the comp.patents FAQ, please correspond
with Peter directly, at pjt@research.canon.oz.au.
