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”

What Else is New


  1. Patent Extremism: Stacking the Panels, the Surveys, the Hearings, the Debates

    Projection tactics would have the public believe that those who oppose corruption are simply radicals; patent polarity has come to the point where if one isn't a "true believer" in blackmail (patent trolls) or opposes bribery, then one is simply a "fringe" and akin to terrorists



  2. Links 24/6/2019: Linux 5.2 RC6, Skrooge 2.20.0, ZFS vs. OpenZFS

    Links for the day



  3. The EPO Needs a President Who Obeys the Law, Not One Who Obeys Battistelli

    Succession based on nepotism at Europe's second-largest institution served to shown how inherently broken things had become and why cover-up of injustices is nowadays paramount (not fixing the flaws/ills but merely perpetuating them)



  4. With Water (Treatment) Already Patented It Won't Take Long for Patents (and Patent Royalties) on Air

    A 'paper economy' is what Europe turns into if the current trajectory is followed (led by lawyers, not producers)



  5. Bill Gates Said He Was on a “Jihad” Against GNU/Linux, But GNU/Linux Users/Developers Engaged in Self-Defense Are Foul-Mouthed 'Microsoft Haters'?

    Microsoft, which routinely commits very serious crimes, tries to come across as some sort of philanthropy whereas those who share their work with the public (for greater good) are described as erratic, rude and unworthy of respect from corporations (outcasts basically, deprived of income source)



  6. What Patents the EPO Has Just Awarded (With a Special Reward), Not Just Granted

    The EPO's practice of elevating some patents over the other patents (European Patents) is perhaps more of a societal liability than the EPO cares to realise



  7. Required Reading: Mental State of Team Battistelli/Campinos

    On the heels of yesterday's article about Team Battistelli/Campinos, here are some recommended/required papers on the problem which likely plagues the Office



  8. Links 23/6/2019: Wine 4.11, FreeBSD 11.3 RC2

    Links for the day



  9. Microsoft Apparently Did a Patrick Durusau on Wim Coekaerts to Broaden Its Control Over GNU/Linux

    Microsoft tactics for defection and takeover of the competition (without coming across as hostile) aren't new tactics; internal documents from Microsoft explain how to achieve this



  10. EPO Directors Would be Wise to Rebel Against Team Campinos While They Still Have the Job

    As the EPO continues its bold journey towards dictatorship (where presidencies are passed between friends and ‘circles’ are former colleagues or close confidants) Techrights urges those who have power to speak out — e.g. EPO judges and Directors — to do something before it’s too late



  11. American Front Group Open Invention Network (Riding the Linux Brand) is a Proponent of Software Patents in Europe

    The impact of American multinationals in Europe is difficult to deny; in fact, we're observing the same old lobbying/lobbies still working hard albeit more covertly (typically using front groups)



  12. Say 'Hey Hi' to Software Patents

    Using the “AI” (“HEY HI”) hype the ‘community’ of patent maximalists hopes that every little (and possibly very old) algorithm will suddenly sound amazing and innovative — to the point where it becomes unthinkable to deny a patent monopoly on it



  13. A Personal Note From Ted MacReilly (How Microsoft Works Against GNU/Linux)

    A tongue-in-cheek write-up highlighting the ways Microsoft insiders think and how they strategise against GNU/Linux and Free/libre software



  14. The Linux Foundation's New Vice Chair, Wim Coekaerts, Worked for Microsoft

    The Linux Foundation is boosting the Microsoft boosters and calls that "community"



  15. Links 21/6/2019: GNOME 3.33.3, 32-Bit Support Further Neglected, DragonFlyBSD 5.6.1 Released

    Links for the day



  16. Leaked: Harassment of EPO Directors by Team Campinos

    “New BIT organisation and staff changes,” a novel kind of newspeak, means that Directors are being severely punished without due process at all (“hidden disciplinary measure without disciplinary proceedings”)



  17. Patent Professionals in Europe Have Devolved Into a Marketing Industry

    Lies, buzzwords and hype waves is all that the patent bubble in Europe boils down to these days; loads of bogus patents get granted only for European judges to smack these down (if one can afford the court battle)



  18. Almost Six Months After Iancu Said He Would Make Software Patents Great Again Nothing Has Actually Changed

    We're just a fortnight away from the ludicrous plan of Iancu celebrating 6 months (without accomplishing anything)



  19. Links 20/6/2019: Kubernetes 1.15, Alpine 3.10.0 and Librem 5 June Software Update

    Links for the day



  20. Ignore the EPO's Dumb Festival and Focus on the Abuses Against the Workforce and Its Quality of Work

    Don’t lose sight of the appalling behaviour of the management of the EPO; the last thing it wants is press coverage about its gross abuses and corruption — an aspect it spent literally millions of euros to bury (gaming the news cycle)



  21. Microsoft Attempting to Destroy the Careers of Its Critics, Including Free Software Proponents

    Microsoft isn't changing and has not changed; the tactics described above are still being used, even by its "Open Source" (or "Open at Microsoft") people, who did this to me



  22. Links 19/6/2019: Linux Mint Vs Vista 10, Qt 5.13 Released

    Links for the day



  23. The Linux Foundation's Business Model

    The Linux Foundation's plan, illustrated



  24. Links 18/6/2019: i386 Abandoned by Canonical and a New osquery 'Community'

    Links for the day



  25. Indifference or Even Hostility Towards Patent Quality Results in Grave Injustice

    The patent extravaganza in Europe harms small businesses the most (they complain about it), but administrative staff at patent offices only cares about the views of prolific applicants rather than the interests of citizens in respective countries



  26. Links 18/6/2019: CentOS 8 Coming Soon, DragonFly BSD 5.6 Released

    Links for the day



  27. 'AI Taskforce' is Actually a Taskforce for Software Patents

    The mainstream media has been calling just about everything "HEY HI!" (AI), but what it typically refers to is a family of old algorithms being applied in possibly new areas; patent maximalists in eastern Asia and the West hope that this mainstream media's obsession can be leveraged to justify new kinds of patents on code



  28. Patent Maximalism is Dead in the United States

    Last-ditch efforts, or a desperate final attempt to water down 35 U.S.C. § 101, isn't succeeding; stacked panels are seen for what they really are and 35 U.S.C. § 101 isn't expected to change



  29. Links 18/6/2019: Linux 5.2 RC5 and OpenMandriva Lx 4

    Links for the day



  30. Weaponising Russophobia Against One's Critics

    Response to smears and various whispering campaigns whose sole purpose is to deplete the support base for particular causes and people; these sorts of things have gotten out of control in recent years
