Subject: RE: Registry object persistence; are BPs owned?

A paragraph got dropped from the end of my last message to this group (1:34
pm).  Sorry.   Here it is.  JBC

However, something can be a trade secret even if it is not protected by 
copyright.  For example, Dave Welsh may or may not want people to know 
exactly which circle of business-term-hell his drop-ship collaboration model 
punts vendors into, if they miss a step.   His protection is that he lodges 
his proprietary BPs into a controlled-access registry.    Jamie
