Surprised not to see this posted already so I am starting the discussion, what is the thoughts here, does ENS intend to work with UD, has any discussions taken place with UD and ENS regarding this patent.
I feel uneasy about the ethics of patenting technology that is open source and not built by UD, but its also a clever move and makes me think they are moving towards creating a dDNS ICANN.
Please share your thoughts, as this could effect ENS.
I feel uneasy whenever someone mentions patents (or as John Oliver calls them – legally binding dibs). I don’t know much about patenting but I know it’s really big and can be ethically shady. The patent abuse was very strong in the US at some point, not sure about the situation now. Therefore, I’d love to see more discussion around this and making sure it doesn’t negatively impact the ENS and its development at some point.
