Re: Reporting the state of an apparatus to a remote computer patented
SW> Date: Wed, 4 Aug 2004 16:18:29 -0700 SW> From: Scott Whyte [snip] I think I'll patent SNMP traps as "low-bandwidth extensible DRM technology". Redirected cron output, EDI, RSS, too, while I'm at it. Looking at archive.org, it seems adventnet.com had XML-based notification before Axeda even existed. Also interesting is http://www.xml.com/pub/a/1999/08/bluestone/ and search for "notification". Some additional quick Google searching turns up tidbits such as http://www.voiceshot.com/public/casestudyid57702.asp http://devresource.hp.com/drc/specifications/wsrf/ http://www.opensec.org/articles/000001.html Then we have various registrars and payment gateways and their XML-based interfaces, which include notifications and state. So why are Axeda and USPTO oblivious to all this?
