        Je me suis renseigné sur la news suivante, qui apparait sur
le site de dotgnu:

> October 10-10-2003: Working around the .NET API patent issue
> We have obtained legal advice on how to go about creating legally
> bulletproof alternatives to the US-patent-endangered APIs. In a
> nutshell, the design part has to be outside the US (and whoever does it
> should never take the fruit of this work with him into the US), however
> the FSF patent lawyer says that implementing those replacement APIs in
> terms of already-exiting free libs will be "entirely safe", even for
> developers in the US.

        Il s'avère qu'il s'agit d'une fausse bonne nouvelle, issue
d'une incompréhension. Je n'ai pas les détails mais la news va être
retirée du site de dotgnu. Dommage.
