Patent madness

Software patents are causing a crazy situation where big companies patent the most stupid things.

Sun is seeking a patent on the company’s per-employee software pricing plan. It’d be interesting knowing who owns the per-company or per-computer princing patents.

Amazon.com has filed suit against Barnesandnoble.com, alleging that the rival book and music e-tailer illegally copied Amazon’s patented 1-Click technology. Has Microsoft patented the double click? Is that the reason why Bill Gates is the richest man all over the world?

The worst thing is that open source can have serious problems with patents.

Stop Software Patents in Europe!.
