I'm having real difficulty. When "software patents" and "EULA's" are being talked about, this is coming close to how "extortion" and "blackmail" were explained to me when I was a young man.
As far as I can tell the main difference between software patents and extortion is the matter of legality. Extortion is illegally using one's position of power or influence to obtain some benefit, whereas a software patent is government-granted permission to do so legally within the scope of the patent. Is this correct?
