Richard Stallman - "The Danger of Software Patents" (Ivrea, Italy)
Jun 27, 2015
from 09:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct software development. Software patents are patents that cover software ideas. They restrict the development of software, so that every design decision brings a risk of getting sued. Patents in other fields restrict factories, but software patents restrict every computer user. Economic research shows that they even retard progress.
Richard Stallman will be speaking at the ConfSL 2.0 (2015-06-26--27). His speech will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.
