This all sounds extremely cool. However, I have to wonder if we will--or ever could--see it in Mozilla or Thunderbird. What is the status of the intellectual property protection on this technology?

AFAIK, Mozilla/Thunderbird uses Bayesian filtering, which works OK but sounds like it might be able to be enhanced/replaced by this sort of thing. However, if Apple's got a patent on it, then I guess the open source community is out of luck (or will have to come up with something better :)

    Hi !

    I am afraid that I cannot answer such a question... I could venture a guess, but not much more.

    Would you be part of an Open Source project, I would recommend that you contact Apple and ask about the status of this technology. They are probably the ones to ask directly when it comes to legal matters.

    I am sorry I cannot be of more help...
