"Today is No Software Patents Patents day. I go both ways on software patents. As a business owner I like the idea of asserting an “unfair advantage” over my competitors by coming up with some super duper patented idea that completely locks in my market. As a software engineer I grow concerned at the land grab tactics of some companies. As a member of the world community I grow concerned at WIPO’s and latterly GATT’s attempts to enforce patent law globally over countries who are coming late to the patenting party."
