Any company that wishes to discourage GPL software.  Since calm logical
discussion is ineffective against the GPL (for obvious reasons), they
must resort to misdirection, sleight of hand, smoke and mirrors.

No, not really.  He's a bright lad, and an Internet search reveals he has
at least one bogus patent to his name (something to do with a storage
algorithm).  He could surely find something positive, enriching and
fulfilling to do with his time.  Boeblingen is not such a bad place.

Alan Mackenzie (Nuremberg, Germany).
