Nothing official has been announced. SA being bought by Cisco won’t even be official till March of 2006, but it is looking more and more like the IP department will disappear. One of my coworkers found an article today talking about Cisco and their patents. They only employee two patent lawyers and then use 10 outside law firms. I suppose they could decide to try something different with SA, but I doubt it. Why maintain five salaries when they can pay a flat fee per patent? Oh well, this will make deciding to leave Atlanta much easier.
