The Danger of Software Patents

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Oct 07, 2009 11:19 AM
Beijing, China - Teaching building S201, Graduate School of CAS, No.3 ZhongGuanChunNanYiTiao, Haidian district. This talk will be part of the Zeuux Free Software Summit 2009. 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.
