Subject RE: Legal Inclusion of mod_ssl in the Standard Distribution of 1. 3.7
Date Fri, 07 May 1999 17:19:20 GMT
Here's a legality question:

Since I own Stronghold (which in return payed RSA for it's patent), can I
use mod_ssl ? 

(and not have to worry about violating anything ?  This is for a corporate
web site.)

Seems Stronghold doesn't want to support AIX anymore, and I need Apache1.3.6
support like yesterday.

	It's still not over. This decision can still be taken to the Supreme
	Court.  And there is the small matter of RSA owning the patents
	(expiring soon?) if I am not mistaken.
