I posted a comment on the first draft of the GPL v3 license. Hopefully, it will be taken into account. Patents are implicit in the text of the current license draft but in the final text those should be made a kind of exception in order to avoid giving credit to such things as "software patents". Moreover, in my country "software patents" are *still* a non-sense, so it should use the "geographical region" thing to restrict its application.
I have the secret hope US can cure this disease before it's too late...
