EFF Patent Project Gets Half-Million-Dollar Boost from Mark Cuban and 'Notch'

http://j.mp/TZp0Cp  (EFF)

     America's broken patent system needs major reform to protect innovators
     and the public. Today, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is
     announcing a major new boost to its patent work: a half-million
     dollars in funding from entrepreneur Mark Cuban and game developer
     Markus "Notch" Persson.

I'm glad to see significant funds designated for patent sanity.  On
the other hand, let us not forget that this is the same Mark Cuban who
has urged mass blocking by ISPs of Internet P2P sites.
