Line wrapping by Eudora made the links go bad.  Here
they should be non-line-wrapped:

"The potential power of 'Software Patents' to destroy Crystallographic 
Software; Crystallographic Software Development; and Crystallography's

(this is not for the Computing Commission's consideration as explained 
below)

Though people might be more interested in some of the present 
crystallographic software patents in existance (and avoid the waffle 
in the text before this):
