There has been attempt to explain why it is a mistake to go for patents in the field of computers. Now if they do not get the clues and do not understand why it is bad they deserve to learn it the hard way.
That is they deserve the chaos and damages to innovation that will result of such a choice. Of course it will damage us not to be able to innovate as we would like, but I think the governments will suffer more from that choice than the community.
So sad they do seem to be going for such a mistake to learn.
