The Web belongs to everyone...
But now and then an individual, a nation, or a company decides that
this should not be the case. Today that company is PersonalWeb, a shell
company from the Eastern District of Texas, which has set out on a
course of patent litigation against some of the largest Internet
companies in an attempt to claim the Web as their own. PersonalWeb's
software patent suit against Github and others threatens the freedom of
the Web. In order to make sure that the Web can remain a free and
accessible space for everyone, we need to rid ourselves of all the
patents that threaten its viability.
We need to end software patents, and we need your help!
