Alan still has a wicked sense of humor.

A list of patents filed by Alan Cox. (Note that many of these are just applications and not yet granted.) I’m particularly amused by the application for a patent on DRM. (Note that I can laugh because of Red Hat’s patent pledge.) Now I just need to find a site which will give me an RSS feed of patent applications filtered by assignee…

[Update later: it is clear from my comments that this post wasn’t clear. Let me restate: I think this is a good, or at least not bad thing- RH’s patent pledge makes it very clear that this will not be used against Free Software; and unlike many other mundane RH patents, this one could (hypothetically) be used against Real Bad Guys. I don’t think that it was bad for Alan, or RH, to apply for this patent in a defensive manner.]
