EFF Announces New Patent Reform Project

  • Let's say the patent demonstration code is in C

    Can I implement something similar in assembly language, and thus, circumvent the software patent?

    Plus, I think EFF will meet with stiff opposition from the powerful association of patent lawyers - they are obviously exerting giga-profits from all the patent-related court cases, and they (the patent lawyers) ain't gonna let this goose that lay the golden eggs get slaughtered by EFF

  • Even the courts lately have been seriously questioning the validity of software patents, and EFF calls for "limiting their duration"???

    Dudes. I am a big EFF supporter and fan, but that's really lame.
