Summary:
Those who are against software patents, such as the Open Rights Group (ORG), argue that patents stifle innovation. "Unlike copyright, patents can block independent creations," said ORG. "Software patents can render software copyright useless. One copyrighted work can be covered by hundreds of patents of which the author doesn't even know but for whose infringement he and his users can be sued."
