Resumen: ¿Por qué la estrategia de revisión de las patentes de software en lugar de hacer frente a todos ellas a través de la legislación, sólo ayuda a aquellos que insisten en legitimar su existencia?

Aquellos que han leído este sitio por algún timepo saben probablemente que no apoyamos el llamado “Peer-to-Peer Patent” (Intercambio de Patentes). Después de algunas discusiones acerca de ello en Identi.ca [1[http://identi.ca/notice/74511165], 2[http://identi.ca/notice/74508483]] parecía razonable repetir una explicación que dimos aquí muchas veces antes, por ejemplo, [1[http://techrights.org/2009/12/09/acta-rears-ugly-head-msft/], 2[http://techrights.org/2010/12/04/peer-to-patent-swpats-reborn/], 3[http://techrights.org/2010/07/23/carlo-piana-peer2patent/]]. Glyn Moody explica que “no puede hacer daño si se aplasta unas pocas patentes de software, ¿verdad?” En realidad Glyn escribió un artículo entero[http://blogs.computerworlduk.com/open-enterprise/2011/05/peer-to-patent-in-the-uk-worth-a-punt/index.htm] en respuesta a algunos de los últimos acontecimientos en el Reino Unido-IPO[http://techrights.org/2011/05/23/patenting-loopholes/]. En ella, sostiene Moody:

Cualquier cosa que detenga que se concedan más patentes malas – sobre todo en el campo del software – es motivo de satisfacción. Una vez que el sitio se lanze la próxima semana, es posible que usted desee echar un vistazo – y tal vez participar en él si ves algo que merece ser aplastado. Es difícil decir qué impacto tendrá en los intentos de las patentes de software, pero ciertamente no hace daño.

Nuestra preocupación es que al dar atención a los regímenes de patentes que revienta-como las propugnadas por el EFF(Fundación Electrónica de la Frontera), Groklaw (actualmente a cargo de Marck Webbink[http://techrights.org/2011/05/17/groklaw-2-0-introduced_es/], quien está estrechamente asociado/afiliado Intercambio de patentes[http://dotank.nyls.edu/communitypatent/bio_markwebbink.html]) y otras iniciativas como el Intercambio de Patentes, reducimos los esfuerzos de aquellos que se esfuerzan por abolir todas las patentes de software de una vez por todas. Hay algunas empresas por ahí que todavía están patentando[http://www.cadcamnews.in/2011/05/transoft-solutions-enters-3d-space-with.html] las matemáticas en 3-D[http://techrights.org/2011/05/24/software-is-maths/] y estas patentes pueden ser más difíciles de anular. Dañan la ciencia real, incluyendo el campo en el que yo trabajo. En Europa formalmente no existen las patentes de software y es importante que siga siendo así. La FFII (Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información Libre) advierte sobre [1[http://twitter.com/FFII/statuses/73331814986551296], 2[http://twitter.com/FFII/statuses/73329332248002561]] los últimos esquemas de Barnier[http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/barnier/headlines/news/2011/05/20110524_en.htm], acerca de quien escribimos en muchos[http://techrights.org/2010/11/06/eu-system-unified-wrt-uspto/] puestos[http://techrights.org/2010/10/28/community-patent-and-barnier/] anteriores[http://techrights.org/2009/12/18/eu-commission-for-michel-barnier/] más. Hay personas dentro de Europa – gente con mucho poder y dinero – quienes trabajan duro para traer patentes de software[http://techrights.org/2011/05/20/swpats-eu-lobby/] (importarlos de la USPTO, por ejemplo). Tienen que ser detenidos con urgencia. Comenzare el arsenal de jardinería en la IPO (oficinas de propiedad Intelectual) del Reino Unido con los monopolios del Intercambio de patentes no es buen uso de tiempo y esfuerzo.

“Para eliminar realmente las patentes de software, debemos apoyar las campañas de la FFII, la FSF, ESP, y la FSFE.”Todos los esfuerzos para abolir las patentes de software podrían en cierto sentido, ser complementarios, pero aconsejo a la gente a trabajar al 100% contra las patentes de software, no legitimarlas[http://techrights.org/2010/10/14/pseudo-foss-promoting-software-patents/] con la OIN o Intercambio de Patentes (a quienes la cuestión es la calidad de las patentes, no las patentes de software en general). Los dos últimos grupos ayudan la agenda de empresas como IBM, pero no hacen lo suficiente para ayudar a las empresas pequeñas e individuos sin un empleadori, se halgan con un cofre de guerra de alrededor de 50.000 patentes. Realmente para abolir las patentes de software, debemos apoyar las campañas de la FFII, el ESP FSF, y la FSFE. Ser un inconformista no ayuda mucho.

“El hombre razonable se adapta al mundo; el irrazonable persiste en intentar adaptar el mundo a sí mismo. Por lo tanto todo progreso depende del hombre irrazonable. “-George Bernard Shaw, Hombre y superhombre (1903)” Máximas para revolucionarios”

  1. Gemini Space/Protocol: Taking IRC Logs to the Next Level

    Tonight we begin the migration to GemText for our daily IRC logs, having already made them available over gemini://

  4. Society Needs to Take Back Computing, Data, and Networks

    Why GemText needs to become 'the new HTML' (but remain very simple) in order for cyberspace to be taken away from state-connected and military-funded corporations that spy on people and abuse society at large



  5. [Meme] Meanwhile in Austria...

    With lobbyists-led leadership one might be led to believe that a treaty strictly requiring ratification by the UK is somehow feasible (even if technically and legally it's moot already)



  6. The EPO's Web Site is a Parade of Endless Lies and Celebration of Gross Violations of the Law

    The EPO's noise site (formerly it had a "news" section, but it has not been honest for about a decade) is a torrent of lies, cover-up, and promotion of crimes; maybe the lies are obvious for everybody to see (at least EPO insiders), but nevertheless a rebuttal seems necessary



  7. The Letter EPO Management Does Not Want Applicants to See (or Respond to)

    A letter from the Munich Staff Committee at the EPO highlights the worrying extent of neglect of patent quality under Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos; the management of the EPO did not even bother replying to that letter (instead it was busy outsourcing the EPO to Microsoft)

  9. EPO-Bribed IAM 'Media' Has Praised Quality, Which Even EPO Staff (Examiners) Does Not Praise

    It's easy to see something is terribly wrong when the people who do the actual work do not agree with the media's praise of their work (a praise motivated by a nefarious, alternate agenda)



  10. Tux Machines is 17.5 Years Old Today

    Tux Machines -- our 'sister site' for GNU/Linux news -- started in 2004. We're soon entering 2022.



  11. Approaching 100

    We'll soon have 100 files in Git; if that matters at all...



  12. Improving Gemini by Posting IRC Logs (and Scrollback) as GemText

    Our adoption of Gemini and of GemText increases; with nearly 100,000 page requests in the first 3 days of Decembe (over gemini://) it’s clear that the growing potential of the protocol is realised, hence the rapid growth too; Gemini is great for self-hosting, which is in turn essential when publishing suppressed and controversial information (subject to censorship through blackmail and other ‘creative’ means)

  18. Another Gemini Milestone: 1,500 Active Capsules

    This page from Balázs Botond plots a graph, based on these statistics that now (as of minutes ago) say: “We successfully connected recently to 1500 of them.” Less than a fortnight ago more than 1,800 capsules overall were registered by Lupa, almost quadrupling in a single year

    Staff of the EPO isn’t as gullible as António Campinos needs it to be



  20. António Campinos as EPO President is Considered Worse Than Benoît Battistelli (in Some Regards) After 3.5 Years in Europe's Second-Largest Institution

    The EPO's demise at the hands of people who don't understand patents and don't care what the EPO exists for is a real crisis which European media is unwilling to even speak about; today we share some internal publications and comment on them

    Today we're highlighting a couple of new examples (there are many other examples which can be found any day of the year) demonstrating that the World Wide Web is like a corporate spamfarm in "news" clothing

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) of the EPO talks about EPO President António Campinos, arguing that “he seems to subscribe to the Manichean view, introduced by Mr Battistelli…”



  29. Prof. Thomas Jaeger in GRUR: Unified Patent Court (UPC) “Incompatible With EU Law“

    The truth remains unquestionable and the law remains unchanged; Team UPC is living in another universe, unable to accept that what it is scheming will inevitably face high-level legal challenges (shall that become necessary) and it will lose because the facts are all still the same
