Summary:
A few days after KDE 4 is out the door, the End Software Patent Coalition (ESP) should come out of stealth mode. Bringing together both the Free Software Foundation and a number of undisclosed private companies, ESP is well-funded, and will be trawling for a test case for its goal of abolishing software patents in the United States. You won't find many people defending software patents in the free software community, so ESP won't create much controversy, but you can expect a lot of blogging and news articles about the coalition and the issues it’s tackling.
