As one whose profession involves the production of content, here’s an article that grabbed my attention.
Here’s one quote that stood out: “Thousands of executives and companies caught in a software patent system that federal judges, economists, policy makers and technology executives say is so flawed that it often stymies innovation.” To this I say, no no: It stymies innovation. “Stymie innovation” is not the exception- it’s the rule!
We, the human race, may one day be spending more on waving laws and threats around than on the production of new content.
This has to stop.
Freedom is progress. Nonviolence is progress. Freedom is the future. Intellectual Property is the past. It’s time to move on.
