Summary:
This week Red Hat filed with the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals to carefully examine the state of software patents in the country. According to Red Hat, a company ripe with support for open source software, software patents are being issued at an alarming rate, and many of them are obvious ideas that should not have passed the patent desk to begin with. Red Hat said that the patent system in the U.S. is currently a "hindrance to open source." There are many out there though that do agree with Red Hat. But the problem won’t stop simply because a software company requests so.
