"By placing all the information side-by-side, we can spot inconsistencies and fill the gaps. I recently found information about software patent case law in France. Everyone I previously talked to said that the only European software patent case law was in Germany and England. On en.swpat.org, there's a page for collecting case law, so now everyone can see that there are three European countries with case law. And maybe there are others that are yet to be uncovered."
