Ruth DemuthDid you see the Richard Stallman article I posted? He had a different proposal, that we should limit the effect of such patents. That way, even when they're granted they aren't as inhibiting. I like that the German parliament is taking a strong stance though. Software patents...boooo!

Christi MillerI definitely think it's an overreaction. You don't need to get rid of such patents entirely. It makes more sense just to make them harder to patent. The patent system can promote innovation, when it works right. The problem is a lot of 'bad' software patents with too broad of a reach.
