Resumen: Otra investigación más demuestra lo que siempre estamos viendo – que las patentes de software son una aporte negativa y ahora hay más pruebas que Apple aumenta su extorsión sobre Android (Linux).

Mientras que los grupos como la OIN usa las patentes de software para luchar contra el uso de otras patentes de software[http://www.unixmen.com/software/1789-oin-a-patent-pool-to-protect-linux-users-from-lawsuits] (la lucha de fuego contra fuego, confundiendo a la gente sobre el problema es uno de “calidad”[http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=cfa47bfe-e244-4345-92fc-dd10db9a6bdd]) grupos como la FFII(Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información Libre), nosotros mismos, la FSFE (Fundación Europea de Software Libre), y la FSF (Free Software Fundación) trabajan duro para convencer a la gente de la necesidad de que las patentes de software como un todo tienen que ser abolidas. James E. Bessen, de la Universidad de Boston (cerca de la FSF), ha publicado este artículo académico[http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1868979##] cuyo resumen dice:

Este informe examina los cambios en el comportamiento de las patentes de la industria del software desde la década de 1990. Se observa que la mayoría de las empresas de software siguen sin patentes, la mayoría de las patentes de software son obtenidas por unas pocas grandes empresas en la industria del software o en otras industrias, y el riesgo de litigios de patentes de software sigue creciendo de forma espectacular. Dados estos resultados, es difícil concluir que las patentes de software hayan proporcionado un beneficio neto social en la industria del software.

También se puede encontrar aquí[http://www.bu.edu/law/faculty/scholarship/workingpapers/Bessen-Generation-Software-Patents.html] y en otros lugares. Carlo Piana dice[http://twitter.com/carlopiana/statuses/84169219897425921]:

Bessen: estudio sobre # swpats muestran un beneficio para los bolsillos profundos y abogados, no SWindustry o la sociedad.

Él también dice[http://twitter.com/carlopiana/statuses/84170937733353472]:

Por supuesto que no necesitamos ningún estudio para observar cómo las #swpats son inútiles y malas #. Sin embargo, es tranquilizador tener pruebas y números lo respaldan

Piana llegó a decir que la única solución es abolir las patentes de software. Él es aparentemente asociados con la FSFE y representó al equipo de Samba en su caso contra Microsoft, que abusa de patentes en este campo (aún lo hace).

El ex jefe de la FFII resume el papel[http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/06/23/1742209/A-Generation-of-Software-Patents-Examined?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter] al escribir:

“James Bessen de la Universidad de Boston ha publicado un estudio de referencia [resumen, texto completo disponible en el enlace, de forma gratuita] en una generación de patentes de software. En cuanto a casi 20 años de las patentes de software, se encuentra “la mayoría de empresas del software todavía no las patenta, la mayoría de las patentes de software son obtenidas por unas pocas grandes empresas en la industria del software o en otras industrias, y el riesgo de litigios de patentes de software continúa aumentar de forma espectacular. Dados estos resultados, es difícil concluir que las patentes de software han proporcionado un beneficio social neto en la industria del software. Hecho “que no sorprende a nadie en actualidad innovando en software.”

El actual jefe de la FFII cita al autor[http://twitter.com/zoobab/statuses/84193092361658368] diciendo que “es difícil concluir que las patentes de software han proporcionado un beneficio neto social en la industria del software”

Apple es por su parte cada vez más de un agresor de patentes[http://www.muktware.com/news/24/2011/1508] contra Linux (esto comenzó el año pasado[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Apple_vs_HTC]):

El Bully de Apple en Cupertino ha presentado una demanda de patentes contra Samsung en Corea del Sur.

No sólo Microsoft está en una posición de tratar de destruir a Linux. Es una plataforma demasiado bueno para construir un sistema operativo a (WebOS, Android, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, etcétera). Apple y Microsoft no pueden competir.

DecorWhat Else is New

  1. Linux News or Marketing Platform?

    Ads everywhere: Phoronix puts them at the top, bottom, navigation bar, left, and right just to read some Microsoft junk (puff pieces about something that nobody other than Microsoft even uses); in addition there are pop-ups asking for consent to send visitors’ data to hundreds of data brokers

  2. Daily Links at Techrights Turn 15, Time to Give Them an Upgrade

    This year we have several 15-year anniversaries; one of them is Daily Links (it turned 15 earlier this week) and we've been working to improve these batches of links, making them a lot more extensive and somewhat better structured/clustered

  3. Back to Focusing on Unified Patent Court (UPC) Crimes and Illegal Patent Agenda, Including the EPO's

    The EPO's (European Patent Office, Europe's second-largest institution) violations of constitutions, laws and so on merit more coverage, seeing that what's left of the "media" not only fails to cover scandalous things but is actively cheering for criminals (in exchange for money)

  4. European Patent Office Staff Votes in Favour of Freedom of Association (97% of Voters in Support)

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) at the EPO makes a strong case for António Campinos to stop breaking and law and actually start obeying court orders (he’s no better than Benoît Battistelli and he uses worse language already)

  12. Intimidation Against Nitrux Development Team Upsets the Community and Makes the Media Less Trustworthy

    Nitrux is being criticised for being “very unappealing”; but a look behind the scenes reveals an angry reviewer (habitual mouthpiece of the Linux Foundation and Linux foes) trying to intimidate Nitrux developers, who are unpaid volunteers rather than “corporate” developers

  14. Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) and KU Leuven Boosting Americans and Cancellers of the Father of Free Software

    The Free Software Foundation (FSF) and its founder, Richard M. Stallman (RMS), along with the SFLC one might add, have been under a siege by the trademark-abusing FSFE and SFC; Belgium helps legitimise the ‘fakes’

  15. Techrights in the Next 5 or 10 Years

    Now that I’m free from the shackles of a company (it deteriorated a lot after grabbing Gates Foundation money under an NDA) the site Techrights can flourish and become more active

  16. 60 Days of Articles About Sirius 'Open Source' and the Long Road Ahead

    The Sirius ‘Open Source’ series ended after 60 days (parts published every day except the day my SSD died completely and very suddenly); the video above explains what’s to come and what lessons can be learned from the 21-year collective experience (my wife and I; work periods combined) in a company that still claims, in vain, to be “Open Source”

  18. Taking Techrights to the Next Level in 2023

    I've reached a state of "closure" when it comes to my employer (almost 12 years for me, 9+ years for my wife); expect Techrights to become more active than ever before and belatedly publish important articles, based on longstanding investigations that take a lot of effort

  19. The ISO Delusion: When the Employer Doesn’t Realise That Outsourcing Clients' Passwords to LassPass After Security Breaches Is a Terrible Idea

    The mentality or the general mindset at Sirius ‘Open Source’ was not compatible with that of security conscientiousness and it seemed abundantly clear that paper mills (e.g. ISO certification) cannot compensate for that

  21. EPO Management Isn't Listening to Staff, It's Just Trying to Divide and Demoralise the Staff Instead

    “On 18 January 2023,” the staff representatives tell European Patent Office (EPO) colleagues, “the staff representation met with the administration in a Working Group on the project “Bringing Teams Together”. It was the first meeting since the departure of PD General Administration and the radical changes made to the project. We voiced the major concerns of staff, the organization chaos and unrest caused by the project among teams and made concrete proposals.”

  24. [Meme] With Superheroes Like These...

    Ever since the new managers arrived the talent has fled the company that falsely credits itself with "Open Source"

  25. Not Tolerating Proprietary 'Bossware' in the Workplace (or at Home in Case of Work-From-Home)

    The company known as Sirius ‘Open Source’ generally rejected… Open Source. Today’s focus was the migration to Slack.

  26. The ISO Delusion: A Stack of Proprietary Junk (Slack) Failing Miserably

    When the company where I worked for nearly 12 years spoke of pragmatism it was merely making excuses to adopt proprietary software at the expense of already-working and functional Free software

  27. Debian 11 on My Main Rig: So Far Mostly OK, But Missing Some Software From Debian 10

    Distributions of GNU/Linux keep urging us to move to the latest, but is the latest always the greatest? On Friday my Debian 10 drive died, so I started moving to Debian 11 on a new drive and here's what that did to my life.

  28. Stigmatising GNU/Linux for Not Withstanding Hardware Failures

    Nowadays "the news" is polluted with a lot of GNU/Linux-hostile nonsense; like with patents, the signal-to-noise ratio is appalling and here we deal with a poor 'report' about "Linux servers" failing to work

  29. Microsofters Inside Sirius 'Open Source'

    Sirius ‘Open Source’ has been employing incompetent managers for years — a sentiment shared among colleagues by the way; today we examine some glaring examples with redacted communications to prove it
