The Unisys U.S. patent on LZW compression expires next month.  EFF was
asked if we were going to have a party, but I don't think we've
planned one.  Is anyone else planning one?

I just had a nice little party to celebrate the release of LNX-BBC 2.1 and
Judge Wilson's decision in the Morpheus case, so if all else fails, I could
probably have a little tiny party of my own.
