This is kinda funny:

   "LinkProof's simplicity and fault tolerance features enable ISPs to
    introduce redundant Internet access to new and existing clients. It
    provides a simple, seamless solution for ISPs who want to upgrade
    their sites to multiple links without deploying and maintaining
    advanced proprietary routing protocols."

Now, where is the proprietary in BGP4 as opposed to LinkProof.  Just
