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.

What Else is New


  1. EPO: Goodbye to the Rule of Law and Hey Hi, AI!

    The EPO’s embrace of buzzwords — no longer a unique EPO strategy (it has already spread elsewhere) — puts examiners in a very bad position and they’re grappling with nerve- and mind-racking dilemmas (risk of unemployment for truly upholding the EPC)

  4. MIT and Microsoft Have Done Nothing to Actually Tackle Pedophilia and Ephebophilia

    MIT never actually resolved the issue that caused Joi Ito, Richard Stallman and others to be ejected; Microsoft meanwhile continues to profit from life-changing abuse (while seeding puff pieces in friendly media, just to pretend otherwise)



  5. Opinion: If You Advocate Population Control and You Are Yourself Doubling in One Single Generation, Then You Might be Hypocritical

    People with 3-5 children (each) tell us that the world has an overpopulation problem; while the growth of the population certainly poses a risk, these people lack the moral authority to lecture us about that (unless they adopt a eugenicist worldview, wherein only particular people are permitted to reproduce)

  8. When the Monopolists and the Patent Litigation Industry Hijack the News They Control the Narrative

    Money buys perception and litigation firms have certainly 'bought' the media coverage, which fails to convey the issue at stake and instead paints a rational court decision as tragedy for "innovation" (by "innovation" they mean monopolies on nature and on life)

    Why nonfree (or proprietary) software generally fails to catch up with Free/libre software — at least on technical grounds — and then makes up for it with marketing and FUD offensives (discrediting perfectly-functioning things, based on their perceived cost)

  19. Distractions From Microsoft's Gigantic Tax Evasion and Contribution to Denial of Climate Science

    Microsoft (connected to oil companies) wants us to think of it as a "green" company; not only does it contribute to climate denial but it also evades tax, which is a serious crime that costs tens of billions of dollars (the public pays this money instead)
