Dismantle Software Patents

The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying. (John Carmack)

Patents protect creations, not ideas. A program is only the means to express an idea.

Software is speech. Speech is free.

Free software.
