hello all,
during  my  research about <www.cuseeme.de> i found  out  that this  
stuff
was invented again after a few  years its  very  strange and i would
like to know if  some  u could  clarify my concerns .
As  far as i know  is  cusee me invented  by tim dorcey and dick cogger
in 1992 <http://lettv.de/cuorg.txt>
Recently i found  out that there was a project called "qVIX / CU30"
<snip>
....member Aron Rosenberg '02 decided that porting the Windows  
implementation of CU30 to GNU/Linux would be worthwhile, as GNU/Linux  
had very few video conferencing applications at the time and Linux  
users tend to be  earlier adopters of new software than Windows users.

<snip>
qVIX couldn't have been written without the work done by the GNU  
Project. While qVIX does use lots of tools developed by GNU, it relies  
heavily on the Linux kernel for several of its interfaces.

at the end  there is  an note
<snip>
Remember to keep in mind that this method is patented. The two US  
patents that cover this are 5,973,626 and  5,740,278.

THESE  PATENT  CAME  FROM FAX TRANSMISSION???!!!!!
