I gave a reply to Evelyn Mitchell, but if the speaker is an attorney,
I'd also be interested in the direction of intellectual property
problems under open source. There has been some recent conflicts (see
broadcast 2000) where giving out open source/free software without
warranty has ended up with stockholders still (successfully) winning a
lawsuit against the author when a company went under after relying on it
(or so I hear through the grapevine...I haven't found any articles on a
specific case).
