Introduction

The topic of this Project is: Open Source as Prior Art (should probably be renamed to FLOSS as Prior Art, just to be neutral about some political/social issues). Thus you need to know what FLOSS and Prior Art is. Here you can find some basic information:

Projects

Things that can be done right now

Use already existing publications as Prior Art

HowTo search for Prior Art in the Internet ( HowTo search for Prior Art in the Internet )
This HowTo is a step-by-step guide on how you could perform a coordinated search for Prior Art in the Internet.
Prior Art meta-search engine
(will be) a system to aid your search for Prior Art
Example Prior Art search
An example where the HowTo search for Prior Art is used on one specific patent
Publication Categorization
If you have no idea, what kind of software might be used as Prior Art for a specific patent, then look here. Basicly this is a mapping between USPTO categories and FLOSS categories.
Request for Prior Art Mailinglist
This might become a mailinglist where you can ask for associations to specific patents. So more people might help you to find appropriate starting-points for your Prior Art research.
Timestamping & Date Forensics

Make electronic data more valuable as Prior Art

Guideline for Developers
What can you do to ensure your program can be used as Prior Art in 20 years
Tagging Prototype

Hi all,

I'm Ken Krugler, founder of Krugle - a search engine for programmers.

Below is an updated version of my introductory post on the priorart-discuss mailing list.


Krugle is a search engine for code and technical content. Millions
technically oriented web pages, plus source code from repositories,
and 50K+ project descriptions linked to code.

Right now tags (notes) are free-form. They have a name, a note, and then
either a line number range in a file, or an entire file/page.
