The EPA: Making the world safer. The EPA have been working on cleaner engines. For ICBMs. "Thus, if the Minuteman III ICBMs have to be used in some future nuclear war, their rocket motors will not pollute the atmosphere. EPA regulations do not apply in foreign countries, so no changes are being made to reduce the harmful environmental effects of the nuclear warheads." more inside

Forgent sues 31 companies over use of JPEG. Like the spectre of the GIF/Unisys monster that would not die, Forgent Networks is rising up to haunt the industry. It filed lawsuits Friday against Dell, Adobe, Apple, Agfa, IBM, Xerox, Macromedia, JVC, Panasonic, Creative Labs, and dozens of other companies for violating patents on their compression algorithms which are allegedly used in the JPEG format. The company talked licensing fees back in 2002 but the community balked or turned a deaf ear. Legit suit or a quick buck? (Also on Slashdot)
