That is no info but a license condition of this particular piece of code. Of course, you are right. Software patents are illegal in all European countries but the EPO is simply ignoring this. Even more bad, a German high court (BGH) did rule that SPs are not unlawful. So if Ascom is going after you (in Germany) you have notmuch of a chance to win against them. -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
