Patents and Software

Suw Charman has an excellent post on this subject.
It is brief and informative and

Software should not be patented at all, it should be exempted at all times.

No one in the audience has a patent.
Lots of people have coded.
No one has ever applied for a patent.

Is right. In fact, we also have problems with trade marks and the actualitie of copyright is now re-writing law in all but name.

In the meantime we have to act within the law - and I know its tough!
