[JDEV] Thoughts on AOL Time Warner

The charter of the Jabber Foundation is to focus on supporting and
facilitating Jabber development.  It's not a legal action vehicle.  I think
the EFF would be better positioned for doing something like this.

Has anyone tried to actually sue AOL Time Warner for monopolistic practices
with respect to their Instant Messaging products and tactics?

I mean, with AOL *and* ICQ, and their constant changing of AIM protocol to
defeat interoperability, it sounds like it would be a sure win.

I'm certainly not suggesting the Jabber Foundation take it on, unless they
can be backed by someone with big enough dollars ... :)
