Hi all,

It's been a very long time since I've been to a SLUG moot...

Anyway, the IET have just dropped this in my inbox, and I wondered if any SLUGgers would be interested...

Advance notice...

* The danger of software patents
Richard Stallman

Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct software development. Software patents are patents that cover software ideas. They restrict the development of software, so that every design decision brings a risk of getting sued. Patents in other fields restrict factories, but software patents restrict every computer user. Economic research shows that they even retard progress.
