Iceland Patents are not only fairly redundant, considering that ownership of software is already made possible by copyright, but flat out harmful. If two programmers independently write similar software, they should focus on improving and standardizing it; not on making it different to avoid legal uncertainties. 4 years 1 month ago

United States Patents may be useful in some industries like Pharma, but they are chilling and destroying creativity and collaboration and costing billions in inefficiently allocated capital in the US software industry. Please read and enact the EFF's proposal on software patents in to law. 4 years 1 month ago

United States Commodore hired a company to write a software product under a private-label agreement. The company did. The first company got bought out but because the second company had filed a patent and sold it to someone else, Commodore's successor couldn't write a sequel to the private-label contracted product. And because the other company sold their patent to Microsoft, the biggest competitor, that company couldn't either. Microsoft has sat upon this patent and not developed a darn thing for any platform. The original product's name was AmigaVision. 4 years 1 month ago

United States As a creator of software, it's very chilling to think that at any moment, code I have written could be subject to a claim on a patent that I never knew existed. The process is not transparent and has a very discouraging effect on attempting to use any technology except for that which you know to be absolutely unencumbered by patents. 4 years 1 month ago

United States No to software patents. That starts the slippery slope to aggrandizement. Any patent that is granted for a physical product must have drawings that would allow a third party to actually construct the device. Allow reverse engineering. Allow more than one person to "invent" a physical device. 4 years 1 month ago

United States It's almost impossible to develop software without violating a long list of patents, that is absurd. It's choking the economy. 4 years 1 month ago

United States Software is naught but intangible ideas and exists only in the intangible universe. It can neither cause nor effect transformations in the tangible universe. Because software is comprised of intangible ideas, it is covered by copyright and cannot be protected by patents. All existing software patents must be invalidated and the USPTO must be instructed to issue no more patents for software. 4 years 1 month ago

United States Software patents cripple startups like ours. I'd love if we could at least have a framework for properly dealing with them, instead of just pure fear. 4 years 1 month ago

United States It's a very worrying trend that highly incompetent, moronic trolls claim absurd patent infringement and try to live off of other people's innovation and hard work. This trend affects badly everyone in the ecosystem from the innovator to the end users. Millions of dollars and precious time are being wasted in fighting the trolls. It's time that the community do something about it. 4 years 1 month ago
