I ‘ve read many articles about Software patent and it’s dark side. Very recently I came across this link http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/audio/audio.html and downloaded all the videos.
RMS is explaining software patenting issue and how we should face this thret in those videos.
No country is going to gain any thing with this software patenting. It is a mess .. 😦 and it is not practical. Do we have time to search all the patent affecting to our software product .. no. The question is how to build the software not what patents apply to the software.
