In his 2nd September PC Magazine column entitled "Patent Riots of 2003", well-known commentator John C. Dvorak describes the absurd consequences of allowing patents on software, and concludes by telling readers to "support FFII".

It's good to see such straightforward coverage of the issue in a major publication.


A nice quote from the article:
The tendency to allow patents for just about any concept has been encouraged by governments worldwide. That lawyers are behind this is no coincidence. It's is a pure bonanza for them. Unfortunately, it has the potential to kill innovation and progress. And clearly this is not what the original concept of patents was all about.
