ES: El Adoctrinamiento de Ingenieros por Abogados de Patentes y Monopolistas

Posted in Intellectual Monopoly, Patents at 3:08 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

(ODF | PDF | English/original)

PHB (Pointy-Haired Boss)Resumen: ¿Cuántas personas que están en contra de las patentes de software con el tiempo se convierten en nombradas por los empresas de monopolios de patentes.

Con suficiente claridad, hay un punto en el que el pago de un salario se convierte en condición de no ser sincero con uno mismo. Este tema fue discutido ayer en el IRC, y también se mencionó hace unos años cuando vimos personas de Novell/GNOME solicitar patentes de software[http://techrights.org/2008/10/22/michael-meeks-novl-patent/] (debido a la presión del empleador). Se trata de patentes que terminan en manos de Microsoft, atacando a Linux y demás software libre/código abierto. Recuerde lo que el inventor de Java, escribió acerca de sus patentes después de que estos habían sido utilizados en contra de los proyectos complementarios de Java.

Los desarrolladores no tienen ideas erróneas acerca de las patentes. Para los abogados de patentes es como una fe, no importa lo que es verdadero, siempre y cuando sea conveniente. La principal víctima es el público en general, contra el cual las grandes corporaciones y sus abogados están librando una guerra. Muchos miembros del público, que se supone que son representados por los políticos, realmente se deje tentar por la ilusión de la correlación de las patentes con la innovación, donde la relación es falsamente supuesta causal. La causalidad aquí sólo es que las patentes causan disminución de ritmo de la innovación, ya que ofrecen privilegios exclusivos, el MONOPOLIO DE CLASE.

Los miembros del público no están obligados a beber el Kool-Aid, pero ¿qué pasa cuando de los salarios de uno depende de tales vidws? La cultura del adoctrinamiento por los directivos es muy peligrosa por la misma razón que las órdenes de los soldados obedecen ciegamente a sus “superiores”, puede conducir a la catástrofe. Se elimina la lógica y la ética, lo que resulta en lo que a veces es llamado “hombre máquina” (o mujeres, para ser políticamente correcto en estos días).

Hace varios meses, se demostró que la parcial propiedad de Microsoft Facebook[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Facebook], se había convertido en un matón de patentes[http://techrights.org/2010/11/11/facebook-swpats-aggression/]. Se trata de amasar patentes de software, ya sea por depósito o mediante su compra. Este nuevo artículo[http://www.law.com/jsp/ca/PubArticleCA.jsp?id=1202496948212&At_Facebook_Learning_to_Like_Patents&slreturn=1&hbxlogin=1] nos dice que dentro de Facebook, a los ingenieros no les gusta las patentes, pero que están siendo presionados para cambiar sus puntos de vista:

Facebook es “Hack-Maratones” son materia de la leyenda geek. Cada mes o dos, los ingenieros de software de permanecer despiertos toda una noche en una lluvia de ideas nuevas y escribir código para crearlas.

Los refrigeradores están llenos de Red Bull. Comida china es entregada. La música suena hasta la mañana – y también lo hacen algunos de Facebook Inc. ‘s los abogados de la empresa.

El abogados de patentes Nair Flores se impresionó tanto cuando los ingenieros en una reciente sesión le dio un hack-a-thon premio de “héroe” . Una réplica del casco que lleva por Boba Fett en “El imperio contraataca”,

“Ser capaz de relacionar e integrar en el hack-a-thon tiene un gran respeto de los ingenieros”, dice Facebook Consejero General Theodore Ullyot.

Desde la llegada de Ullyot en 2008, él y su equipo han hecho patentes una prioridad. Una de las cosas que están haciendo es tratando de convencer a más patentes de los ingenieros al derribar los muros que los separan de sus abogados.

Qué vergüenza. Esto es lo que los abogados de patentes de llevar a una cultura viva de código. No están allí para reproducir innovación si no para crear cercos. Se debe mencionar que, como hemos demostrado en muchas ocasiones, los desarrolladores de Microsoft en el presente y el pasado de vez en cuando hablan en contra de las patentes de software. Se trata de una opinión de riesgo que puedan compartir, porque su sueldo depende de ello. Parte de su salario proviene de la extorsión de patentes de Microsoft.

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), reaffirmed by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) and now the Supreme Court as well, carries on preventing frivolous lawsuits; options for stopping PTAB have nearly been exhausted and it shows



  11. Software Patenting and Successful Litigation a Very Difficult Task Under 35 U.S.C. § 101

    Using loads of misleading terms or buzzwords such as "AI" the patent microcosm continues its software patents pursuits; but that's mostly failing, especially when courts come to assess pertinent claims made in the patents



  12. António Campinos Will Push Toward a France-Based Unified Patent Court (UPC)

    Frenchmen at EPO will try hard to bring momentum if not force to the Unified Patent Court; facts, however, aren't on their side (unlike Team UPC, which was always on Team Battistelli's side)

    Another reminder that the "LOT" is a whole lot more than it claims to be and in effect a reinforcer of the status quo

    Another lobbying event is set up to alarm lawmakers and officials, telling them that the US dropped from first to twelfth using some dodgy yardstick which favours patent extremists



  19. Patent Law Firms That Profit From Software Patent Applications and Lawsuits Still 'Pull a Berkheimer' to Attract Business in Vain

    The Alice-inspired (Supreme Court) 35 U.S.C. § 101 remains unchanged, but the patent microcosm endlessly mentions a months-old decision from a lower court (than the Supreme Court) to 'sell' the impression that everything is changing and software patents have just found their 'teeth' again
