Speeking as the president of one of those companies out there trying
to make a living by selling TCP/IP code for PC's ...
As a developer it IS my responcibility to produce a product that my
clients desire and to develop new features and approches.
I have done just that, but I am afraid to market it. Why ? Because the
Universities will produce a public (or very cheap) version and have their
name behind it! All my time, effort and MONEY will be wasted.
What can I do ? Get a Patent ? That takes years, and the protocols might
have changed by than.
I ask you, what would you do if you wanted to sell such a product.
(Remember were a very small company)
