 >There was one other interesting quote which I couldn't re-find. This 
said that software companies in Ireland are characterised by the fact 
that they have products (as opposed to services, I suppose). This 
apparantly came about because in order to get support from Enterprise 
Ireland, a company had to have and to *own* a product i.e. they had to 
have the IP rights to that product.

Hence perhaps the philosophy behind the Irish govt pushing the software 
patent directive.

Question: do IFSO want to respond to Mr Friel?
