... you'll get a take down notice from companies, as just happened to
this guy who wrote an almost trivial algorithm to match music and
published it on his blog: http://sites.google.com/site/redcodenl/
I'd be worried about a new crop of patents that could be as broad as
"system and methods to conduct courses online". I guess the race is on
to build and document some iCollege methods now as it would constitute
prior-art and prevent some of these legal issues.
