World Day Against Software Patents – 24 September

September 24th, 2008 by Sjan Evardsson

Whether you think that software patents are a BAD THINGTM (as do I) or you think they are a good idea, it is important to know what it happening around this issue. Today is World Day Against Software Patents. Organized by the Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure the day is meant to draw attention world-wide to the issue of software patents and encourage active participation in the fight to stop the practice. There are links to articles, a draft of their petition to stop software patents worldwide which you can sign and/or comment on, and way more information than you are likely to be able to get through today. Check it out.
