IEEE Spectrum returns
to the software patent debate
with a suggestion.
"There is no sensible means of reconciling an industry that has
massive independent invention with a law that makes independent invention a
liability. So what's the solution? How can we protect programmers and
companies that invest in developing innovative new software from being
ripped off--without tying the entire software industry up in red tape? The
answer is copyright.
" (Thanks to Mark H. Weaver).
