MSNBC Article: AOL Patents Instant Messaging

AOL patents instant messaging AOL has filed a patent based in ICQ's IM but the definition is so broad that it is a threat to any IM product (inluding MS and Yahoo). This will be interesting. Umm, wonder if it covers "finger/talk" in Unix where the "network" is one of terminals? Posted by mofoghlu at January 2, 2003 8:39 PM
