Full Article Attached Microsoft Patents Style Sheets and Butt Hinge

Thursday February 4th, 1999

Microsoft has received patents for "Style sheets for publishing system", and for "Butt hinge with integrally formed butt straps"..

It was mighty kind of Microsoft to get the input of the development community before taking everything for themselves. I guess that everyone should just feel glad that Microsoft let them participate at all.

Thank you, Microsoft!!!

at least the door hinge patent seems like the kind of thing patents are for in the first place - a practical, useful, physical invention that seems to have a real tangible advantage.

or maybe i'm just a stinking communist for thinking "intellectual property" should go under copyright laws, not patents. whatever.
